Description

  • A 1924 Bauhaus classic
  • Simple and functional
  • Iconic design exhibited at the MOMA

Wilhelm Wagenfeld Bauhaus Desk Lamp

"Form follows function" is the essential principle embodied by the iconic Bauhaus Desk Lamp produced in 1924. The collaboration between the renowned industrial designers Wilhelm Wagenfeld and Carl Jucker resulted in the simple geometric shapes of the lamp, illustrating the Bauhaus School philosophy. The revised principles of art and technology achieve unity in the radical basic form of the design. Its disc-shaped base, cylindrical stand and spherical glass lampshade fuse into a logical structure of practicality and aesthetics.

ItaliaDesigns produces Wagenfeld’s Bauhaus Lamp in two different sizes with a smooth, matt glass lampshade and either a clear glass or nickel-plated metal foot.

About the Designer

Wilhelm Wagenfeld

Wilhelm Wagenfeld Committed to improving the quality of consumer products, Wilhelm Wagenfeld designed home goods that benefited from advances in industrial materials and manufacturing processes. Wagenfeld specialized in glass, developing functional, affordable, and elegantly minimal heat-resistant glassware that has been widely duplicated. His best-known design was conceived while he was a student at the Bauhaus. TheWA 24 Lamp, realized as a metal workshop assignment for László Moholy-Nagy, exemplified the school’s imperative for design based on essential geometric forms, use of industrial materials, and honesty of function. Dubbed “the Bauhaus Lamp,” it is composed of a hemispherical shade supported by a transparent shaft on a circular base. Its frosted glass shade—typically used for industrial lighting—and the visibility of the electrical cord and other functional parts, confounded prevailing notions of design for domestic objects.
