An important example of perfect simplicity, this lamp was designed by Sybold van Ravesteyn in 1926. Made of chrome-plated nickel, the design is now officially re-issued by Giso Verlichting in a limited edition. An iconic “less is more” design capturing the essence of minimalism and modernism in lighting.
The lamp comes with a bakelite, button light switch, single E27 LED Light (bulb included), neutral braided cord and European 220V plug.
