Concept

This freestanding luminaire from 1947 exemplifies Wiener Werkbund criteria. By threading the saber-shaped stand through the lamp shade, designers J.T. Kalmar and A. Pöll melded form as well as function—the stand allows the lamp shade to be positioned at three different, reader-friendly heights. The hardwood stand and handle may be finished in a satin matt red or black lacquer, or left in a natural state with a protective oil or wax coating. The base reflects the lightness of the floor lamp as a whole; all metal parts can be finished in black bronze, polished nickel, or matt black lacquer.
