Various similar models of this “Lamp de Travail” were made in 1930, proving especially popular as office lighting. A similar lamp forms part of the permanent exhibition of forms at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. While it can’t really be classified as a table or floor lamp at a height of 78 cm, it’s particularly suitable for low tables. Its open-topped shade is made of opal glass, which scatters a gentle light throughout the room. As was common practice in the 1930s, the metal surfaces are alternately plated with nickel and chrome, which gives the lamp a special aura when it reflects the light. Each lamp is numbered consecutively and bears the TECNOLUMEN signet.
