Pair of Midgard upcycled scissor lamps in steel look with shades made of aluminium.
The design of those vintage scissor lamps 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 cleaning rust removal
of all elements, the lamps were polished brushed varnished and rebuilt again. All the small parts were cleaned, polished, oiled.
The lamps have signs of wear consistent with the age and use.
They have been polished to give them a steel look.
The lamps are in very good overall condition. The Midgard shades made of aluminium have scratches, lights dents and marks of use.
The mechanical system of the lamps functions perfectly.
The electrical equipment was renewed and refurbished with a three-wire system and a blackcloth coated cord was used. A switch can be mounted if needed on the cord according to prior agreement.
The lamps can be easily attached to the wall with the wall-mount bracket and screws.
