Pure minimalist TC2 floor lamp designed by Aldo van den Nieuwelaar and manufactured by Artimeta, Netherlands 1972. This floor lamp has an amazing shape and the base contains the transformer that is heavy enough that it also acts as the counter weight for the lamp. The form of this lamp is like a one-line drawing. It starts as a hook and goes straight up after a hard bend, like a paperclip. This particular lamp is an early version and is made from white painted metal and is stamped at the bottom number ‘27’. The lamp is in original condition with minor age related wear and paint loss. The tubular vertical stem can rotate so you can adjust the lights direction. Gives beautiful light when lit. Can be used as floor or wall lamp using the keyholes at the bottom of the base.


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.
