In 1965 Joe Colombo came up with the "Spider" concept, in which a single lighting fixture, designed for a special horizontal spot light, was assembled, thanks to a melamine joint, for a variety of situations (home or office) and on different supports (table, floor, wall, ceiling), thus coining the concept of a "family" of lamps. 

In 1967 it won the first "Compasso d'Oro" award for Oluce, and in 1972 it appeared at the ground-breaking New York exhibition "Italy: the new domestic landscape".

Spider is also part of the permanent collections of the Milan Triennale, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Kunstmuseum of Düsseldorf and the "Neue Sammlung Museum" in Munich.

Telling about Joe Colombo means telling the brief but intense parable of one of the greatest Italian designers, who died in 1971 at the young age of 41. It means telling about a life, as quick as lightning, of a man who strongly believed in the future and who gave us a very particular prefiguration of those fundamental 60s, when the future suddenly started to appear closer.

Joe Colombo's future was an anti-nostalgic future in which an intelligent technology would have helped every human activity, laying the foundations for completely new living models. At the time, Joe Colombo designed entire living cells. The first one was for Bayer, Visiona '69, an integrated cell divided in ''functional stations'': the ''Night-Cell'' block (bed + cupboards + bathroom), the ''Kitchen-Box'' (kitchen + dining room), the ''Central-Living'' (living room). These functional stations are articulated mapwise as well as sectionwise, just like the homes designed by Joe Colombo, where floors and ceilings go up and down, continuously accelerating and slowing down within the interior dynamism, where shelves hang from above and lights are deep-set in the floor.

Telling about Joe Colombo means telling about a man for whom research had no limits, becoming artistic research on the one hand, and scientific research on the other.

He has been awarded many prizes and quoted in selections. Many of his works have been exhibited and included in the most important Museums's collections all over the world.
And still many more things could be told about Joe Colombo, which are all, however, dominated by the tormenting statement that the brief years in which ''creativity had the power'' have also been the brief, magic years of Joe Colombo. Fate has prevented us from finding out what this visionary genious would have done in the dark times which followed. Still today however, forty years later, many of his products, still with future-like characteristics, live beside us every day, constantly talking to us about a better future.

Oluce

Established in 1945 by the master Giuseppe Ostuni, Oluce is the oldest Italian lighting design company that is still active today. In the 1950s, Oluce quickly reached an international public through Domus magazine, thanks to the vision of Gio Ponti.

For many years, Vico Magistretti was art director and chief designer of the company, conferring his unmistakable stamp and a legacy of worldwide recognition. With international design awards dating back to 1956, many of Oluce's products are on permanent display in the New York Museum of Modern Art.

Oluce's products have contributed to the history of lamp design through the genius of designers like Vico Magistretti, Tito Agnoli, Joe Colombo, Marco Zanuso and more recently, Laudani & Romanelli and Nendo.
