As previously recalled (Finessi, 2003), the idea for the Morocco lamp arises from Magistretti's observation of a system of organizing glasses over the bar of a pub in New York.

As in the system that Magistretti designed for his lamp, the glasses are arranged along special racks hanging over the bar. The Morocco suspension lamp features a modular chromed brass structure that can accommodate up to 36 glasses on a grid-like rack. The lamp represents the perfect union between the functional (the glasses are ready for use) and the aesthetic aspect, as the glasses simultaneously double as diffusers to refract light. The lamp finishes with a lamp holder lodging 8 dichroic lamps at the end of a rigid support that is available in two different lengths of 140 or 170 cm.
