Deconstructing Product Design
It is hard to believe that this piece was designed before WWII, in a world that was so much different than what came after WWII, yet speaks of our times with such accuracy.
The only thing I can think of is that the base should be pretty solid and have an uneven weight distribution at that end. I don’t want to find the lamp shooting towards me or to the floor while I yank the activation string.
Superfunctional avant-Deco (1924). Why isn’t it called the Wilhelm Wagenfeld lamp? Looks fab with Eileen Gray chrome and glass aesthetic. [This image looks inexact … is it a Technolumen?]
