This is the so simple and very beautiful "Modern Art" table lamp handmade since the 50's in Finland of a transparent acrylic column base and an opal white acrylic shade. Yki Nummi was one of the first designers to use the new post war acrylic and plastic materials for lighting, and he created with these simple materials one of the masterpieces of Finnish design now known world wide. The 4 5/8" diameter X 16" high column comes equipped with invisibly suspended standard E27 bulb socket and unobtrusive rocker switch on a white cord with US plug. The 11 3/8 diameter opaque light diffusing shade simply sets on top, three small acrylic pegs on the base holding it in place.
Uses 60W standard or energy saving bulb for soft ambient light.
