Second half of the 20th century, The Netherlands
Approx. 1980, the Netherlands
Developedafter an idea of Ettore Sottsass and his Memphis Group, in the early 1980s, the design was given a new concept and expression with new shapes, patterns and innovative use of materials, in which the limits of lighting and furniture production were explored.
They were inspired by contemporary trends and also by ancient cultures, such as Art Deco, Pop Art, Roman and Greek B.C. cultures.
This high-quality, heavy table lamp made in the 1980s strongly suggests a temple building from an old European culture. The design of these lamps is clearly inspired by the famous 'Pausania'-light of Sottsass (1983), although the origin of these specific lamps is most probably the Netherlands.
Thick glass creates a fantastic light effect thanks to the halogen light source which is hidden at the top.
The dimmer needs some attention (needs to be replaced), however, the lamps work just fine.
Great opportunity to purchase a set of lamps from the Memphis-era!
Total height of the lamp: 38 cm
Width of the shade: 45 cm
Width of the base: 24 cm
