About the Item

Adjustable and rotational table lamp, an "icon" from the Midcentury era. This innovative desk lamp by Nelson blends functionality with beauty. Peter Nelson, a renowned British designer, celebrated for his contributions to lighting design, particularly table lamps. He is known for his minimalist and functional designs that are often characterized by elegant simplicity and technical precision. One of his most famous works is the Nelson Table Lamp, designed in the 1960s and 1970s. This lamp is appreciated for its clean lines, use of high-quality materials such as aluminum and stainless steel, and attention to detail in both form and function. Nelson’s designs often have an industrial aesthetic but remain timeless and refined. Peter Nelson’s work exemplifies how form and function can be beautifully integrated in lighting design, making his creations both practical and aesthetically pleasing.

  • Cubic3 Dutch Design Table or Desk Lamp "Nachtschade", Nightshade Plants Inspired
    Located in Lisse, NL
    Unique, adjustable and rotational, stylized plant table lamp, from 1987. This rare and interesting table lamp is number 65 of a limited edition of only 100 and one of the others is in the famous Dutch "Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen". Illuminate your workspace with "Nightshade", the innovative desk lamp that blends functionality with botanical beauty. Crafted by hand this adjustable lamp brings a touch of artisanal charm to your desk or sidetable. Designers Ton Hoogerwerf en Gerwen van Vulpen must have been inspired by this particular group / family of plants (a family that grows particularly well in the night and in the shade, hence the name Night-shade) and the result of their design ideas has become a collector's item at home and abroad. Obviously for a lamp to have such a design and such a name makes this work of lighting art a true result of fresh creativity. The bottom part represents the flower pot, then the stem with the leaves and at the end the flower with the bulb as a stamen. Cubic 3 Design...
