Coupé originated in 1967 from the creative intuition of Joe Colombo, who initially designed it as a variation on a lamp already in the company’s collection, the Spider, retaining its base and stem. Starting from these bold, simple features – the base, the stem and the adjustable cover serving as a shade – the designer created one of Oluce‘s best-known families.
The Mini Coupé wittily maintains all the vigour common to Joe Colombo’s designs of the 60s, a time when design aimed to fulfil a function while also making an aesthetic statement, when experimentation with new materials, use of colour, movement, and the desire to break new ground were the guiding lights of his creations.
The Mini Coupé, with its chrome stem and semi-cylindrical shade, retains the distinctive profile and bold character which define the Coupé collection and which have always made it an exceptionally modern lighting range, now even more complete.
As a testament to its international success, it won the International Design Award from the American Institute of Interior Designers in Chicago the year after its creation and is included in the permanent collection of both the MoMA in New York and the Neue Sammlung Museum in Munich.

Prolific Italian architect and designer Joe Colombo, born Cesare Colombo, believed in democratic and functional design, meant to be used in many different ways - all for the benefit of the user. Ahead of his time, Colombo relied on emerging material and the latest technologies to design futuristic “machines for living”, many of which have become icons for a new way of living.
Founded in 1945, Oluce is the oldest Italian design company in the illumination sector still in operation today. The design qualities of the lamps make them icons that communicate across the generations to become an integral part of the homes they furnish.
