Slender and sturdy
The Stemlite was inspired by the strong, organic, yet slender stems that support flower heads in nature.
The Stemlite (1962) was the first ‘total look’ lamp, a pioneering new typology conceived by American Designer Bill Curry.
American designer William ‘Bill’ Edwin Curry captured the zeitgeist of the 1960s and ‘70s with his iconic lamp designs. From his unique Los Angeles vantage point at the meeting point of art, design and engineering, during an era defined by the space race, pop culture and a new forward-looking optimism, he translated the wonder and delight he saw around him into simple yet intelligent ideas with clear visual narratives.
Carefully curated and intuitively iconic. That's been the spirit of GUBI since 1967. Rediscovering the heart of historical pieces and seeing how a contemporary vibe can help us write new chapters and find harmony in the eclectic.
