The Globe Wall Sconce


Design by Joe Colombo, 2015
Blown Glass / Metal
Made in Italy by Oluce

The Globe Wall Sconce was designed in 1964, and is made in Italy. A beautiful combination of hard and soft, The Globe Wall Sconce showcases both industrial and mid-century modern influences. Mounted to the wall by a round, metal backplate, the stain nickel-plated structure of this modern wall sconce supports the clear, blown-glass shade. Housed within the shade is the exposed light source which is supported by the metal socket. When illuminated, this wall light casts generous accent light that is perfect for use in a hallway, bedroom, dining room, or living room space.

Master designer Giuseppe Ostuni founded Italy-based lighting brand Oluce in 1945. Now the oldest Italian design company still in existence and actively producing today, many of Oluces domed lights are now on permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Ostunis award-winning and dramatically arced floor lamps, domed table lamps and pendants, glass scones, and uniquely-shaped outdoor lighting have influenced the lighting and design industry for decades and will continue to do so for generations to come.
