Rare brushed Kaiser Idell 6551 table lamp
The Company Kaiser & Co Leuchten KG was founded in 1895 by Christian Dell, a goldsmith and industrial designer, who teached at the Bauhaus school. He designed a large range of lights (more than 500 models) with the idea to create interchangeable and strandardised parts of lamps. The Idell Lamps are today like an timeless ideal, with a simple and clean avant-garde design, nobles materials and an essential functionality.
The table lamp Kaiser Idell 6551 was designed by the Bauhaus artist Christian Dell in 1926 for the lamp factory k & co. This lamp is the original model of the 6556 light, at that time still without lettering on the shade (very rare).
After the thorough dismantling, cleaning, rust removal
of all elements, the lamp was polished, brushed, clear coated and rebuilt again.
It has a noteworthy patina.
It has been polished to give it a steel look.
The mechanical system of the lamp functions perfectly.
The lampshade can be smoothly moved horizontally thanks to a ball joint.
The electrical equipment was renewed and refurbished with a three-wire system and a black cloth coated cord was used.
The light is operated by a push button located on the lampbase.
