Very functional desk light, designed in 1973, by Swedish designer Anders Pehrson for Ateljé Lyktan.
I think it’s a very clever design. It is not only a beautiful lamp with progressive design techniques for that time, but also the height of the lamp absolutely ensures that the lamp doesn’t shine in the eyes when it’s lit. Yet it illuminates a very large surface. The horizontal tube in which the lamp is located can be turned slightly to direct the light beam as desired.
The lamp is made of plastic and in very good condition. Just a little normal wear and tear. Designed in the early 70s, this item is a product of the post-Pop and Plastic Fantastic era.
