Wagenfeld lamp of the Bauhaus period
The Wagenfeld lamp is one of the most famous lamps of the Bauhaus period. It was designed in 1924 by Wilhelm Wagenfeld (1900-1990). After an apprenticeship in a silverware factory and a visit to a drawing academy, he was accepted as a journeyman in the world-famous Bauhaus workshop, where he created the design classic W24, the "Wagenfeld lamp", or also called "Bauhaus lamp". With his designs in metal and glass, Wagenfeld became one of the most important industrial designers of his time.
With glass dome and glass
The WG24 Wagenfeld luminaire consists of an opal-coloured glass dome, the base and the column are made of clear glass and the bezels of nickel-plated metal. The metal hemispheres under the base plate give the lamp its "light-footedness".
The lamp is manufactured according to the original dimensions and materials of Tecnolumen. All luminaires are numbered consecutively under the base plate and bear the Bauhaus and Tecnolumen symbols. The delivery takes place without illuminant.
The Wagenfeld luminaire was awarded the "Gute Form" federal prize in 1982 and was among the "Best 200 for the year 2000".
