I don't know if it's just me and my lack of acquaintances to other design lovers, but I've seen this light for the first time: from my present (actually completely unsuspicious of good taste) employer. I think this relatively rare use is both a curse and a blessing: a curse because it is really beautiful and of timeless elegance. Blessing, because then one cannot see oneself so easily at it fullly and the lamp is so always something special.
The lamp comes with complete equipment, i.e. lamp, canopy, lamp socket and 7 Watt LED lamp (no Phillips or Osram, but to me an unknown brand, but it fulfils its purpose). Even a (in my opinion rather useless) ceiling attachment is enclosed. Unfortunately the lamp socket is made of plastic. Cloth cable and porcelain socket would of course have been nicer. However: optically it fits, because also the lamp is made of plastic. By the way, one of the more solid variety, so don't worry. But whether the white turns yellow over the years can only be seen in time. What is initially surprising is the design of the lamp socket to a maximum of 20 watts. However, this must probably be the case with regard to the heat generation of normal light bulbs (e.g. halogen) so that the lamp does not melt.
The lamp socket is attached to the luminaire by means of a wire construction which appears to be less filigree or resilient and by means of which the luminaire is "clamped" to the cable of the lamp socket. Difficult to describe, you have to see (by the way: there was no manual for this). Even if this is a construction that doesn't bear any weight, I still don't find it particularly successful and stable. But deductions in the overall score.
By the way, I don't recommend to use the milky enclosed lamp as a lamp, because it takes a lot of light away in connection with the quite thick plastic of the lamp.
