Product Description

Midgard DRGM DRP vintage scissor lamp mod. 110 with original grey paint

The design of this vintage hinged scissor 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.

Its original condition is good. The lamp has signs of wear consistent with its age and use. The arm, part of the scissor and the shade show small losses of paint.
The lamp is engraved with the Midgard logo.
The mechanical system of the lamp functions perfectly.

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 lamp socket.

The lamp can be easily attached to the wall with the wall-mount bracket and screws.
