Midgard DRGM DRP Ausl Pat big old black scissor lamp, mod.112
The design of this vintage scissor lamp was developed by Curt Fischer, who worked on the idea of the ‘steerable light’ from approx. 1920 on. Even before the well known designs by Christian Dell or Marianne Brandt, Curt Fischer realized the idea of the so-called ‘steerable light’ with the all-round movable work lamp. The metal workshop at the Weimar Bauhaus was lit with Midgard lights, serving as an example to Bauhaus students, and was used later in Ilse and Walter Gropius’ master house livingroom at the Dessau Bauhaus.
The lamp has a few signs of wear consistent with its age and use. The painting dates from an earlier restoration . The shade made of aluminium has a small dent.
The lamp is engraved with the Midgard logo on the head and DRGM DRP Ausl Pat (before the war) and ‘Einstellung’ on the scissor.
The mechanical system of the lamp functions perfectly.
The electrical equipment was renewed and refurbished with a three-wire system and a black cloth coated cord was used.
The light is operated by a rotary switch located on the lamp socket.
The lamp can be easily attached to the wall with the wall-mount bracket and screws.
