Minimalist floor lamp model A251 designed by Aldo van den Nieuwelaar and manufactured by Artimeta in the Netherlands in 1972. It’s made of matt chrome-plated steel with a unique dome shaped frosted milk-white glass shade. The slim stem smoothly connects to a chrome ring at the base to maintain the lamps balance. The lamp radiates beautiful atmospheric light that has a great reach and comes with its original cord and plug. Wonderful light sculpture and an iconic design by van den Nieuwelaar.

Born in 1944, Aldo van den Nieuwe­laar is a Dutch designer and archi­tect. He founded his own studio in 1969 and spent his career design­ing furni­ture, light fixtures, light sculp­tures, and archi­tec­ture. His work is known for its simplic­ity and clarity of form Van den Nieuwelaar’s iconic work is in his sculp­tural fluo­res­cent light­ing which often featured curved steel tubes in white and chrome and geomet­ric fluo­res­cent tubes. One example is the TC6, a square box with a circu­lar fluo­res­cent tube. In 1973 van den Nieuwe­laar collab­o­rated with Pastoe to create a series of narrow cabi­nets with shutter doors. His award-winning designs are exhib­ited in museums through­out the Nether­lands as well as the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.


This lamp is checked in our own atelier, cleaned and is suitable for use in the USA. For US usage we could change the plug, or you can get a converter if needed for a floor or table lamp with transformer in it.
