Kho Liang Ie Artiforte lamp ST46, Holland 1957
Height: 160 cm
Width: 30 cm
Depth: 30 cm
RARE and beautiful floor lamp model ST46 designed by Kho Liang Ie for Artiforte in 1957. This very hard to find lamp has a very nice Japanese look, 3 round black lacquered metal bars holding a rice paper shade in the middle for very nice warm diffused light. This lamp has a TL lamp for warm light when lit. This lamp was quite expensive at the day and that’s probably why you don’t see them often. This lamp was made in a very low production process, all lamps are hand built. All lamps you see will differ a little, some have massive frames, some square some round. This lamp has round feet but I know this is from the 1st production process. This is how the lamp is also documented in the Kho Liang Ie book. It’s still in good original vintage condition with very nice patine from age. Would adapt all modern interiors, future investment.
