Description

This early modernist design exhibits the creativity and style necessary for making show-stopping industrial design.

Von Nessen often used ready available products and reinvented them to create her unique and eye-catching lighting solutions. The trumpet shaped aluminum shades create contrasting arcs with the brushed brass frame of the lamp. Sleek functionality with a twist - this was her trademark.
