Elegant old Midgard 126 jointed lamp.
The design of this rare double-jointed lamp comes from the Curt Fischer, CA 1920 has worked on the idea of “steerable light”. Before the well-known designs by Christian Dell, or Marianne Brandt, Curt Fischer with the all-round mobile workstation lighting implemented the idea of so-called ‘steerable light’. The metal workshop at the Bauhaus in Weimar was lit with Midgard lights and the Bauhaus students and served as inspiration, and is verifiable in the living room furniture by Ilse and Walter Gropius in their house at the Dessau Bauhaus.
After the thorough dismantling cleaning
of all elements, the lamp was polished painted and rebuilt again.
The lamp has signs of wear consistent with its age and use. The shade made of aluminium has been painted in the past and has two very small holes and a small dent.
The lamp is in good overall condition appart from some scratches.
The lamp is engraved with the Midgard Sun on head.
The mechanical system of the lamp functions fine.
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 rotary switch located on the original bakelite lamp socket.
The black clamping lampbase can be easily fixed on the table surface/table top.
