About

Some consider this lamp the “Holy Grail” of Industrial lighting and typical of the rare odd objects and lamps you will find on our pages. You can’t make a more dramatic visual statement than this lamp! The 12 inch aluminium ball head has five lenses and reflectors. Each lens has a large mirror on an out rigger dedicated to it. Each mirror is angled to pinpoint the light. This was designed for the operating room and would cast no shadows on the table. Revolutionary for its time. This lamp is also the cleanest example we have ever seen. Its perfect for a dining or conference room.
