Aldo van den Nieuwelaar TC4 floor lamp Artimeta 1969





Introducing the TC4 floor lamp, a pure minimalist masterpiece designed by Aldo van den Nieuwelaar and manufactured by Artimeta in the Netherlands in 1972. This floor lamp is a testament to van den Nieuwelaar’s innovative design ethos, characterized by its sleek silhouette and functional elegance. The TC4 floor lamp features a distinctive shape reminiscent of a one-line drawing, with a minimalist form that captivates the eye. Its base contains a transformer that not only provides stability but also acts as a counterweight for the lamp, ensuring balance and stability.


One of the standout features of the TC4 lamp is its versatility. The tubular vertical stems can rotate, allowing you to adjust the direction of the light to suit your needs. Whether used as a floor lamp or mounted on the wall using the keyholes at the bottom of the base, the TC4 emits a beautiful and ambient glow when illuminated.A true icon of minimalist design, the TC4 floor lamp by Aldo van den Nieuwelaar is not only a functional lighting fixture but also a sculptural work of art that adds a touch of sophistication to any interior space.


Crafted from chrome-plated metal, this particular lamp is a rare find, part of a small production run of only 14 pieces. Stamped with the number ’12’ at the bottom, it is one of the last lamps made in this series. Despite its age, the lamp remains in original condition with minor wear, adding to its vintage charm. The lamp is checked in our own atelier, cleaned and is suitable for use in the USA with a special transformer. For US usage we could also change the plug, or you can get a converter if needed for a floor or table lamp with transformer in it.


Aldo van den Nieuwelaar’s contributions to the world of collectible design are often overlooked, despite their significant importance. His works can be found in almost every major design museum worldwide, underscoring the relevance and impact of his designs. Despite this, the market for van den Nieuwelaar’s creations remains relatively niche. The limited production runs of some of his lights contribute to their desirability among collectors, both domestically and internationally. However, this limited availability also presents challenges for expanding the market and increasing awareness of his work.


Van den Nieuwelaar’s designs are characterized by their minimalist aesthetic and innovative functionality, embodying a timeless quality that transcends trends. Each piece is a testament to his meticulous attention to detail and forward-thinking approach to industrial design. As appreciation for mid-century and modernist design continues to grow, there is a renewed interest in the works of designers like Aldo van den Nieuwelaar. With their understated elegance and enduring appeal, his creations are poised to garner the recognition they truly deserve in the world of collectible design.
