Inspired by the human spine and intended to resemble vertebrae, the 'Flex’ floor lamp was designed by Elio Martinelli for Martinelli Luce, Italy in 1969.
Composed of a ribbed, swivelling arm in white plastic which glides easily back and forth, and a fully rotatable lacquered metal shade and stationary base.
The 'spine' is flexible allowing for height adjustability.
Measures: Height can be adjusted from 11.25" to 62.75" Length can be adjusted from 12.75" when lamp is erect (base diameter) to 60" when fully extended.
The shade diameter is 8.25" (Dimensions provided reflect the highest adjustment and the shortest length, which, in this case, is the base diameter.)
Nice, vintage condition, sans light scratches and paint loss to the base.
