desk lamp | leuchtenbau erfurt | c. 1960


its always nice to present a piece, in this case a desk lamp, designed and produced in erfurt. the basic idea of this lamp comes from the olympia-lamp by e. kloepfel & sohn of the 1930s. this lamp had a spherical joint to the shade and a zylindric joint to the base. the new model got two spherical joints and a formal facelift. both models were designed by the in-house engineer hans hellmich. [aluminium, chromed steel and bakelite, h. 48cm]
