Vintage Hala Desk Lamp, 1930's

About the Item

This desk lamp was design and manufactured by Hala, in the Netherlands, during the 1930's. It is made of high quality grey metal base with a black lacquered shade. The arm allows the hood of the lamp and the direction of the light to be adjusted in many different positions. Marked Hala on the lampshade. It remains in good, vintage condition, preserving a beautiful patina. Although the correct date of company's inception is unknown, it is widely accepted that Hala was one of the first lighting manufacturers in the Netherlands. Sometime around 1932, H. Th. J. A. Busquet (1914-1955) became the design director. During the Great Depression, Hala began producing cost effective products utilizing pipe and rod iron. After the Second World War, Hala’s simple and affordable designs were praised by the Goed Wonen Foundation, which aimed to address postwar material shortages and improve the quality of daily life through well-designed products for the home. During the 1950s and ‘60s, Hala became a symbol for the economy of modernism. Most likely drawing inspiration from the De Stijl and Bauhaus movements, Busquets designs were reductionist in style, forming a coherent relationship between form and function.
