The marvellous 1950s floor lamp with a nicely structured ceramic shade in white on black lacquered wooden base comes with a large fiberglass diffuser that creates a gentle, indirect light. Its sculpturral character makes it a very exceptional piece. Designed by Mitchell Bobrick, manufactured by Controlight. Differing from previous modernist movements, US modernism was characterized by less rigidity and functionality. Californian designer Bobrick embodies this paradigm, shared also by Greta Grossman, Greta von Nessen, Ben Seibel and Lester Geis.
