Born in Mendrisio, Switzerland in 1943, Mario Botta is a working architect and designer in the postmodern style. Studying at the Liceo Artistico in Milan and the University of Architecture in Venice, he worked with the greats, Le Corbusier and Louis Kahn, designing houses and churches. His architecture features strong geometric forms, just like his lighting. He is famous for his Shogun lamps and this table lamp version is a great example. With his signature black and white striped base and manipulatable metal shades. The enamelled perforated shades allow you to alter the positioning of the intricate shadows created on the surrounding walls, helping you get the mood just right.
