Product Story

This freestanding luminaire from 1947 exemplifies Wiener Werkbund criteria. By threading the saber-shaped stand through the lamp shade, designers J.T. Kalmar and A. Pöll melded form as well as function - the stand allows the lamp shade to be positioned at three different, reader-friendly heights. The hardwood stand and handle may be left in a natural state with a protective oil or wax coating. The base reflects the lightness of the floor lamp as a whole; all metal parts are finished in black bronze. The 1500mm H version is also available in a polished brass foot. 

Two sizes available:

Small: Shade ø 470 mm H 1500 mm 
Large: Shade ø 520 mm H 1830 mm


Shade is silk, timber options are wedge, oak or rosewood. Metal options black bronze (polished brass available for H 1500m only)
