Midgard wall lamp with original hammertone coat


SKU: 21010A0644e Category: Tag:


Midgard wall lamp with blue hammertone coat in nice original condition

The design of this vintage hinged double-jointed 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.

Its original condition is very good. The lamp has signs of wear consistent with its age and use. The arms and the shade shows tiny losses of paint.
The lamp is engraved with Midgard ,the logo and the shade marked with Midgard.
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 bakelite lamp socket.

The lamp can be easily attached to the wall with the (silver or hammertone blue: please tell us your preference) wall-mount bracket and screws.
Please refer to the photos for more details.
