Fantastic and rare floor lamp designed by Wim Rietveld for Gispen, Culemborg Holland 1953. The lamp has a black lacquered solid metal base and a white lacquered arm with a rubber end, a red lacquered shade which is redone in the original color. The lamps overall condition is very good.
Wim Rietveld was the only one of the Rietveld family who managed to produce industrial furniture on a large scale. This lamp was one of the first designs by Wim Rietveld for Gispen from an experimental period when Wim started to work for Gispen. The regular panama lamp, model 6322 wasn’t only much cheaper to produce and to sell but also more functional. So the panama was sold much more than this lamp and the production stopped in 1955 when the normal panama was finished. This is for sure the nicest lamp designed by Wim Rietveld and we are happy to have one in our selling collection.
