About

Six metal perforated shades are attached to a chrome plated ring with chrome plated machine joints. A brass ring holds the cords together and leads to a brass ceiling rose. These cords can be shortened 30-40 cm. The shades measure width 21 x 23 cm and height 17 cm. The shades have been re-sprayed. Designer Ab Read 1899-1973 studied metalwork at the Royal College 1919-1923. He worked for Bagnes French lighting in the 1920s and later designed this lamp for manufacturer Troughton & Young in 1948. This light was exhibited in the Festival of Britain in 1951. Read is seen as a Pioneer in Lighting design. His interest in Gropius led him to visit the Bauhaus.
