Product Description

Midgard wall lamp with grey hammertone coat, Mod 126

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, cleaning, rust removal
of all elements, the lamp was sealed with oil and rebuilt again. All the small parts have been cleaned, and oiled.

Its  condition is very good. The lamp has signs of wear consistent with its age and use.
The lamp is engraved with Midgard on the base and the Midgard logo on the head.
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 bakelite lamp socket.

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