Super rare table lamp designed by Willy van der Meeren and Jean Stuyvaert, manufactured by Tubax Belgium 1955. This table lamp was made in very limited small production, only a few are known to still exist. This table lamp has a black painted solid tubular metal frame and a black and red shade. Typical work by Willy van der Meeren. The lamp has a nice patina from age and usage, the black part was once professionally repainted. Very nice large sized table lamp quite heavy because of the enamel lacquer finish on it. Gives very nice spherical light when lit. Lamp works perfectly and can be used in the USA as well, you will only have to use a holiday converter or change the plug.

Willy van der Meeren (1923 – 2002) Van Der Meeren initially studied medicine at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in 1942. However after one year, he stopped this training and decided to study architecture. He signed up for the Académie de Bruxelles in 1943, but soon discovered that his modernist thinking was not in line with the attitude within this institute. Because of this, in 1944 he was forced to continue his training at Ter Kameren. Here he was surrounded by the most important Belgian modernists of the twentieth century.

Van Der Meeren was especially interested in the construction and mass production, and his social commitment (one of the principles of Ter Kameren was that architecture is a matter for the masses, and not for the individual). He is also considered one of the most important Belgian furniture designers of the post-war period.
