Description

This rare, beautifully-refined floor lamp is one of the most coveted New Zealand-made design objects of the mid 20th century. The fine workmanship is particularly evident in the mahogany flower buds, delicately weaving around the perfectly-sculpted stem.

The minimal, highly-considered adornment gives this floor lamp an organic twist. The fluid curves of the stem are balanced by the bold negative spaces left behind. This elegant lamp came in three versions, each of increasing complexity; this one is the most detailed.

Unfortunately the maker of these stunning lamps is unknown to us.
