About the Eclipse lamp, Maurício Klabin said: “ I think that the work of a designer must be of good quality, beautiful and cheap. With the Eclipse lamp I have overcome the trauma of expensive design. This lamp was ready many years before I mass-produced it. I had the idea but only wanted to launch it when I was able to manufacture it at a reduced cost. Design should be accessible to the vast majority of us. I don't think it's good or even desirable to create things for only half a dozen people. I need popular objects to exist. ".

The Eclipse lamp has been part of the renowned permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA) since 2006.
