Vintage Factory Lamp with Two Fluorescent Tubes




This vintage factory lamp complements any space with its timeless industrial design. Typically found in workshops, offices, and factories, this lamp was a staple in East Germany during the 1950s when lighting still had a sense of celebration. The conscientious approach to its design, the quality of the materials used, and the artistic approach are a statement to this ethos. As a result, this lamp is surprisingly robust and durable. The number of parts and their refined connection to the overall form stem from a production process that is almost unheard of and practiced today. Initially designed for daily life on the production line, this lamp is prized for its ability to accent any living or working space. 

We have painstakingly restored this lamp to full working order. The ballast and electrical parts have been replaced to comply with European technical requirements. The lamp can easily be converted over to LED tubes with consideration of the technical requirements. 


The center ballast box is made of die-cast aluminum with its original paint. The fluorescent tubes are held in place by Bakelite sockets and protected by a borosilicate glass outer tubes. The lamp is suspended by the center junction box which is attached to the pendulum.
