The Wagenfeld lamp counts to the most famous lamps of the Bauhaus time. It has been designed by Wilhelm Wagenfeld (1900-1990) in 1924. After an apprenticeship in a silverware factory and after being trained in a drawing academy, he became fellow craft in the world-famous Bauhaus workshop and there he created the design classic W244, the "Wagenfeld-Lamp", or also "Bauhaus-Lamp". With his designs out of metal and glass, the Wagenfeld lamp became one of the most important industrial designs of its time.
The lampshade is also available as replacement if it breaks. Instead of disposing the whole lamp only because the lampshade is damaged, this one can simply be substituted, enabling the Wagenfeld lamp to prove its exceptional quality for more years.
