Leonardo Da Vinci invented extraordinary machines whose designs were centered on man, on the possibility of giving human beings the ability to fly or do things then considered impossible. The Vitruvian Man demonstrates how man was at the center of everything and that the human intellect could reach anywhere.
We dedicated this model of luxury ministerial lamp to Leonardo precisely because we believe in man's ability to create beauty and expand his knowledge beyond all limits. Leonardo is a ministerial lamp made entirely by hand by expert craftsmen with the highest quality products: the glass of the lampshade contains the radiation of the light and directs it onto the desk. Leonardo is a luxury desk lamp with a sinuous, soft and at the same time solid body, made with solid brass and antioxidant treatment capable of resisting the passage of time.
Leonardo's intuitions have remained in history, as has the ministerial lamp, a desk lamp as simple as it is refined. Also known as Emeralite or banker's lamp, this furnishing object is now synonymous with elegance because it creates a deep and soft atmosphere, ideal for concentration.
// ITALIAN DESIGN

The weight is approximately 3.5 kg (7.71 lbs), demonstrating the solidity and strength of the product. Sometimes there may be some small bubbles on the surface of the glass, it is absolutely normal due to the craftsmanship of the glass.

// HISTORY OF THE MINISTERIAL LAMP
The first patent for the Ministerial Lamp was filed on May 11, 1909 by Harrison D. McFaddin and they were produced and sold under the brand name Emeralite ("emerald" and "light"). The banker's lamp (or emeralite) is often used in libraries, law firms and the most prestigious offices around the world.
