Stemlite, the debut product of Bill Curry's Design Line, was introduced in the 1960s as the first lamp eliminating the base-plus-shade concept. All the bases and glass globes in the Stemlite series were interchangeable, allowing for endless combinations. The style quickly gained popularity and was later emulated by others. The Stemlite collection draws inspiration from nature: the streamlined die-cast metal base resembles a tough yet delicate stem of a tulip, carrying the beautiful glass shade like a fragile bud waiting to unfold.
The simplistic yet impressive design language of the Stemlite lamps can be easily combined with all styles of decor from classic to eclectic to experimentative, making them an exceptional fit for public spaces as well as private. Bill Curry studied in Los Angeles Art Center, and after graduating worked as an ad-man and Art Director before creating his own company for design furniture and lighting, Design Line, in 1962. Bill Curry is best known for his iconic collection of Stemlite lamps from the 1960s, universally celebrated for their innovativeness and unique attractiveness. Lamp is in working condition.
