The Wagenfeld Lamp counts to the most famous lamps of the Bauhaus era. The ancient variant of the world famous lamp was designed by Wilhelm Wagenfeld (1900-1990) in the year 1924. The WG 25 has a galvanized tube instead of a see-through tube like the original WG24 has.
Wilhelm Wagenfeld has been entered as journeyman in the world famous Bauhaus-workshop after he finished his apprenticeship in a silverware factory and visited a drawing academy, creating his classic lamp afterwards, also known as Wagenfeld Lamp or Bauhaus Lamp. With his designs out of metal and glass, Wagenfeld became one of the most important industrial designers of that time.
The W lamp by Wilhelm Wagenfeld is available in numerous editions. The WG 25 lamp has the typical opal-coloured glass cupola. The foot of the lamp is made of glass, the tube of galvanized metal.
The Wagenfeld lamp is manufactured according to the original Wilhelm Wagenfeld dimensions and materials by the company Tecnolumen. Tecnolumen produces the only copyright protected and authorized reedition of the Wagenfeld lamp. All lamps therefore wear the Bauhaus and Tecnolumen sign.
