The glass design of the 1924 Wagenfeld table lamp - history and quality made in Germany
Today, only the company TECNOLUMEN produces this re-edition of the table lamp, which was developed in 1924 and authorised by Professor Wagenfeld, based on original templates. Its authenticity is verifiable, based on the characteristic features of this lighting product.
This includes the more or less hemispherical lampshade made of hand-blown opal glass, which extends with a fine border made of nickel-plated metal to the rod and round base plate. Another quality feature here is the characteristic grommet on the socket, at which the black pull-cord is located, with which the Wagenfeld table lamp can be turned on and off. At the end of the cord is also a nickel-plated bead. Also the glass rod of this version, in which a nickel-plated 10 mm tube guides the power cable, based on an old drawing of the creator. Connected to the round base also made of glass is the braided black textile cable of the power cable.
Only the combination of these individual components guarantees the authenticity of this designer product. For verification purpose, each lamp bears the TECNOLUMEN/BAUHAUS stamp under the black base plate and is consecutively numbered.
The Wagenfeld table lamp is more than a lighting product. It is a lamp with which a period of German history is integrated in the space in which it is located.
A story like a good novel - the Wagenfeld table lamp
The Wagenfeld table lamp is a truly impressive story. The plot plays in the State Bauhaus in Weimar, the College of design during the Weimar Republic. Here came the leading contemporary artists together and there were countless masterpieces, which are now undisputed classics of the modern age under the term Bauhaus design. Its distinctive mark is the shape, which always follows the purpose, the material properties and the production method.
The Wagenfeld table lamp is a product of Wilhelm Wagenfeld, who was just 24 years of age in 1924 and was inducted freshly as a journeyman in Bauhaus. He created this model according to a task assigned by László Moholy-Nagy, a former teacher. A lamp was created with the character of an industrial product, but actually manufactured on the basis of craftsmanship. At the same time, the Wagenfeld table lamp was the beginning of Wilhelm Wagenfeld long career as tutor and Director of various metal and glass workshops, as well as Professor at the University of Fine Arts in Berlin.
