Vintage Postmodern desk or bankers lamp in the style of Robert Sonneman for George Kovacs from the 1980s. Born from the idea of Ettore Sottsass and his Memphis Group in the early eighties, the design gained a new concept and expression through new shapes, patterns and innovative use of materials, exploring the limits of lighting and furniture production. This table light was made during the eighties and strongly suggests a temple building from an ancient European culture. The design of these lights is clearly inspired by the famous ‘Pausania’ light by Sottsass (1983). Matted black lizard skin paint finish, brass columns and chrome accents on a matte black base, thick oblong thick glass that give a fantastic lighting effect thanks to the halogen light source that is hidden by black metal mesh and a matte black casing. Dimmer switch with knob to center of base. Postmodern design halogen desk lamp after Robert Sonneman for Kovacs.
Use with halogen light bulb 60 watts max.
