Manufactured by Baltensweiler AG. We have various examples in stock. The Swiss designer created a lamp series for Knoll international in 1959 and was commissioned with noumerous prestigious large-scale-projects including the Luzern train station restaurant, the aula of the Van Leer-foundation in Jerusalem, for the theatre and art center Luzern and the theatre Zurich.
