‘LUNA’ pendant by H. Fillekes for Artiforte, 1950’s
Designer(s): H. Fillekes
Material(s): matted nickel, Perspex, opaline
Measurements (cm): W 35; D 35
Quite rare pendant by the Dutch midcentury lighting company of Artiforte (famous for the 'Magneto' floorlamp). This lamp was part of the collection in the late 1950's and early 1960's. This lamp goes by the name 'LUNA' and is together with the 'Magneto' floorlamp the only lamp in the brochure that has a name instead of a number. The lamp is made of matted nikkel with a Perspex hood a white opaline bottom. It has new sockets for three light bulbs. With its signs from age and use it is still a great item and ahead of its time when it was first designed.
