This “lamp de travail“ or work lamp, was created in France around 1930 in a number of diverse but similar designs, and was widely used as a work lamp in offices. A similar lamp may be seen at the permanent exhibit at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.With a height of 78 cm (30 3/4“) it is neither a table lamp nor a floor lamp, although it is especially suited for low tables. A soft light is diffused through the room through the opaque glass shade, which is open at the top. As was common in the Thirties, the metal surfaces have received different finishes; nickelplate alternates with a chrome-plated surface, the ambient light producing a particularly attractive effect. Each lamp is numbered consecutively and bears the Tecnolumen logo.
Base and tube chrome plated, upper base plate and socket nickel-plated, opaque glass.
