DESIGNER: Duquette

EDITOR: Kohler Interiors, Baker Knapp

PERIOD: 1960's

The dramatic Terrapin Lamp takes many of its cues from lamps originally designed by Duquette for a private penthouse in Honolulu, Hawaii. Cast from bronze, the lamp features a large raw bronze shell topped with a unique finial of individual dark bronze shards emanating from a golden bronze and Murano glass center. An intricate laser-cut brass filigreed column finished in Dark Bronze surrounds and supports the shell, and terminates to a square base covered in beige suede. The shell is backlit by a single 40-watt bulb, capturing the natural beauty of the shell's luster, deep bronze tones, and touches of incandescent Murano glass. Circa 1960.
