This Week’s Must-Haves: MoMA’s Retro Lamp Has Serious Design Cred

This week, the Adweek staff is highlighting must-have items including a USB wall plate, a stylish bike from Rag & Bone and a retro table lamp. Take a look!


Eclisse Table Lamp, $250

Created by famed Italian industrial designer Vico Magistretti for Artemide in 1967, the Eclisse lamp has become an iconic piece of modern design that can be found in the permanent collections of museums around the world—including MoMA, which debuted an exclusive red version for sale in its store last year. The lacquered steel lamp features a rotating inner shade that regulates the output of light by "eclipsing" the incandescent bulb within (hence the name—"eclisse" translates to "eclipse" in Italian).

Free up precious outlet space with the SnapPower Charger, an ingenious cover plate with a built-in 1 amp USB charger.

Nixie Epoch Clock $235

Proving that not all tech needs to be high-tech, the Nixie Epoch clock from indie design shop Tungsten Customs offers plenty of retro appeal. Each clock, made from maple hardwood with a cardboard backing, uses vintage Nixie tubes to display the time. Plus, the Epoch is energy-efficient, consuming less power in a month than a 40-watt bulb does in a single day.
