Medusa is an iconic design lamp for table and floor. It was designed in 1968 by Olaf Von Bohr for Valenti
Medusa from ancient Greek: Μέδουσα, was a Greek mythological monster from whose head snakes hung. Together with Stheno and Euryale, she was one of the three Gorgons, daughters of the marine deities Phorcys and Ceto.
According to the myth, the Gorgons had the power to petrify anyone who crossed their gaze and, of the three, Medusa was the only one not to be immortal.
The name of the animal derives from this mythological figure. The filaments of the jellyfish resemble the snakes that made up the hair of the Gorgon.
Sinuous and winking, it combines the principles of a polished and minimal design with a charge of timeless dream and poetry.
This lamp is present in the permanent collection of the Italian Design of the Milan Triennale.
