Description

John Crichton was one of the most talented and progressive New Zealand designers of the mid 20th century. His pioneering work helped define what is now known as Pan Pacific modernism, a locally inspired fusion of Japanese, American and Pacific references combined with a modernist ethic.

Crichton's furniture is rare and sought after as it was generally produced in low quantities by local artisans. This stunning floor lamp is an inspired example of the Pan-Pacific modern style Crichton is loved for.

This is a rare piece of New Zealand design history with a similar example in the permanent collection of Te Papa.
