Manufacturer Artemide S.p.A.

Not on view

Mario Botta's use of radically simplified and reduced geometric forms as well as his insistence on rationality and functionality in his designs reveals a close affinity with the Bauhaus and Modernist traditions. During the years 1964 to 1969, while living in Venice, Botta made contact with giants of the modern architectural world—Le Corbusier, Louis Kahn and Carlo Scarpa. These three architects/designers continue to influence Botta's own work which includes both domestic and public architecture as well as designs for objects such as the Shogun lamp.
