Concept

While working at the Building Engineering College in Weimar, in 1930,Wilhelm Wagenfeld created these standard lamp with fabric lampshade. 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.

Nickel plated metal, black lacquered base, chintz covered shade.
