Concertina Brass Wall Light
Denmark, Circa 1950
A petite concertina wall light in polished brass, designed and made in Denmark circa 1950. The arm of the light can be manipulated in three ways; from the wall bracket the light moves around a 180 degree angle, the arm also extends and retracts thanks to the scissor joints and the head of the lamp can move up and down.
Despite the lamp being super practical, the limited materials used throughout and their nature result in the utilitarian design also being aesthetically pleasing.
The adjustability of this piece makes it an extremely useful light that would work perfectly beside a bed or reading chair. Furthermore, the petite size of the light means it could also be used to zone an area in a thoroughfare.
Complete with bespoke newly made shade in a textured, off-white, linen-cotton-blend material. Rewired for the UK using chocolate coloured braided flex. In excellent vintage condition.
As you can see in the images, a table light in the same proportions by the same manufacturer is also available.
