Diameter: 45cm

An beautiful 1960s nine-tier "Tornado" ceiling light by Elio Martinelli for Martinelli Luce.

Italian designer Elio Martinelli was responsible for many iconic lamps such as the Cobra and Serpente. The Tornado is one of his rarer ceiling lights.

This light is comprised of interlocking steel bands which join a central stem in a gracefully geometric configuration. It emits beautifully dispersed light.

It is in excellent structural condition. The metal has some very minor paint loss in keeping with age.

The flex is over 2m long, but it could be easily shortened to hang from lower ceilings.
