Product description

While working at the Building Engineering College in Weimar, in 1930,Wilhelm Wagenfeld created these standard and table lamps with fabric lampshades. The optical proximity to the Bauhaus table lamps demonstrates Wagenfeld’s permanent desire to experiment and his ongoing search for the final form, which is frequently found before the actual end of the development.
Originally the lamps were produced with Cellon lampshades. However, this material
is no longer allowed for safety reasons, so that we produce our models with a heat-resistant plastic lampshade covered with fabric.

Info: Sole copyright and authorized edition by Prof. Wilhelm Wagenfeld
Material: Nickel plated metal, glass tube, glass base, chintz covered shade with conical shade support
