The Stemlite lamp collection was the first modular lamp collection, where the same basic elements combine to give rise to suspensions, table lamps, floor lamps and wall lights - originally 48 versions featuring the same glass globe and the same tulip-shaped metal rods. The collection, now reissued by Gubi, includes two table lamps, two floor lamps and a pendant light.
Highly innovative, the Stemlite collection was voted "Most Influential Lamp of the Year" by Industrial Design Magazine in 1965, used on the set of the original Star Trek television series, and remained in production until 1977. The Stemlite was Curry's best-selling and best-known collection, selected by the United States Department of Commerce to showcase American design in the Soviet Union, Yugoslavia and Iraq in the 1960s.

A graduate of the Los Angeles Art Center but also with a background in aerospace, Bill Curry captured the zeitgeist of 1960s and 1970s America, from space racing and the era of airplanes to new pop trends.
He established his own Los Angeles studio, Design Line, in 1962, and envisioned new forms of lighting made possible by emerging technologies.
Bill Curry rose to fame by creating innovative, daring and colorful lighting collections suited to a new era of optimism, without forgetting a strong connection to nature. The Stemlite collection was thus inspired by the strong, organic and slender stems that support flower heads in nature.
