Midgard DRGM old rare white wall hinged lamp from an hospital in original condition.
The design of this vintage hinged double-jointed lamp was developed by Curt Fischer, who worked on the idea of the ‘steerable light’ from approx. 1920 on. Even before the well known designs by Christian Dell or Marianne Brandt, Curt Fischer realized the idea of the so-called ‘steerable light’ with the all-round movable work lamp. The metal workshop at the Weimar Bauhaus was lit with Midgard lights, serving as an example to Bauhaus students, and was used later in Ilse and Walter Gropius’ master house livingroom at the Dessau Bauhaus.
After the thorough dismantling, rust removal
of all elements, the lamp was cleaned and rebuilt again.
The lamp has signs of wear consistent with its age and use. It shows some losses of paint. The rare shade is in very good condition.
The lamp is engraved with the Midgard logo and DRGM (before the war). The shade still has the stick from the hospital.
The mechanical system of the lamp functions perfectly.
The electrical equipment was renewed and refurbished with a three-wire system and a grey cloth coated cord was used.
The light is operated by a switch located on the bakelit lamp socket.
The lamp can be fixed at the wall with the wall mounting and screws. As those parts of the has been painted later, they show a light saturation difference.
