Cassina Lighting launches Nemo

Nemo – Cassina Lighting’s latest products come in three reeditions: a series of table lamps designed by Le Corbusier, Man Ray and the iGuzzini brand.

Escargot revives the famous Escargot model designed by Le Corbusier in 1954. Nemo – Cassina Lighting is producing this table lamp in a limited edition, maintaining all of its original allure.

The model presents fluid lines recalling the shape of a snail, with a golden exterior and a silvery interior. The etched brass-plated body conveys the idea of solidity and compactness, whereas its light creates an ethereal aura.


La Lune Sous Le Chapeau designed by Man Ray, presumably in the 30s for his own desk and then industrialised in the 70s, combines artistic research with mass production.

Reissued by Nemo – Cassina Lighting, the table lamp is composed of a simple base with a metal rod holding the diffuser, which can be positioned manually creating soft light towards the ceiling or direct light on the tabletop.

Sorella, a re-edition of the Harvey iGuzzini model that became famous thanks to the television series “Space: 1999”, has been revived by Nemo – Cassina Lighting in a version that is very faithful to the original.

The matte white polycarbonate body – with sleek, fluid lines – holds a direct fluorescent light that enhances its cold, futuristic character.
