Extremely rare modernist table lamp designed by Aldo van den Nieuwelaar and manufactured by Nila lights, Tilburg in The Netherlands in 1968. The lamp is made of a white plastic square structure with a plexiglass diffuser that can spread light all around or, on the back, it just focuses on the corners for a cool 3D effect. This lamp is one of the few original productions of the Ming lamp from 1968, not the 2008 Boops reedition, which is quite different. The Boops version has a switch on the side. The Boops reedition only had about 20 made, and the original Nila 1968 production had even fewer. That makes this lamp a true collector’s item. Marked with the original Nila sticker on the bottom/side.


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.
