De Chirico gave this form to the heads of his “Disquieting Muses”, in a square in Ferrara.

The core of the lamp is a cylindrical body in satin-finished borosilicate glass. Its face is a bubble of transparent, blown borosilicate glass which makes the light shine brightly. De Chirico had already given this form to the heads of his “uneasy muses”.
The structure is in metal painted dark grey, with a ring base in the floor version, but a disc base for the table version.
