Samson Berman Studio Floor Lamp with Integrated Table


Custom-made floor lamp with integrated side table from the studios of Samson Berman Associates, circa 1956. Organic woodcraft with foil edges like on an airplane wing or ship's rudder. Original form executed in spirit of 1950s studio craft movement. Calls to mind the designs of Philip Lloyd Powell. Walnut tabletop has inlaid brass linear decorations. White double cone diabolo shades on brass armature. Could also be used as a stool. Samson Berman was one of the leading lights of cutting edge modern interior design during the 1950s, championed by such luminaries of good taste such as Betty Pepis (NYT Home Editor) who featured and promoted Samson Berman designs throughout the 1950's in The New York Times. Never mass produced, all their furniture designs were bespoke. A similar lamp was integrated into one of Samson Berman's platform seating designs. See image 8.
