This striking floor lamp was produced by the Örsjö Armatur company in Sweden in the 1950s. The design consists of a circular base in solid teak wood and a central cylindrical teak wood stem with a bamboo shaped carve detail in the middle.The brass stem and the light fitting are mounted on top of the teak wood base. The lamp is stamped with the manufacturers stamp ÖEA on the bottom of the base.
The cylinder shade is a custom design in a beautiful linen Svenskt Tenn fabric. In Josef Frank’s Baranquilla print, lianas are crafted into a beautiful scenery of lush fruits, flowers and leaves. The print was designed around 1943-45 during Josef Frank’s stay in New York – a place where many of his imaginative designs took form.
The lamp is in very good original condition. Currently wired with a 220V European plug.
