The Sixties was known for its libertine attitudes and experimental designs, which is clearly evident in these lamp creations displayed in the Space Age Lights exhibition. Exploring the fine line between practicality and beauty of objects, it is an endeavor in bridging the gap.

As the name Space Age Lights suggests, the exhibition features designs that embody a retro futuristic vibe entirely reminiscent of the 60s. Currently located at the La Triennale di Milano Design Museum, these lamps "balance edginess with mass appeal," according to Cool Hunting. The show also has a befitting subtitle: "Between Pop and the Avant-Garde."
