A stunning and timeless ‘Magneto’ floor lamp designed by Henk Fillekes and manufactured by Ateliers Artiforte in the Netherlands, produced from 1954-1958. This rare lamp was produced for a short period and not that many were made, these were hand assembled and this was not a big company, this lamp is from the starting period by Artiforte in the mid-1950s. The name of the lamp is pretty obvious as this amazing design has 1 very recognizable centre point, the magnet. It has a very nice solid metal tripod foot, and this foot is connected to a balancing arm using the round shaped magnet. The tripod foot is made of solid steel and is lacquered in black, the arm is nickel plated metal and the weight and shade are black as well. The magnet still works perfect, and you can use it in many different positions. The lamp is in amazing original condition with only very minor wear from age and usage for the chrome arm and shade. Because of the magnet and perfectly balanced design, this lamp is not only beautiful, but also very practical and functional. A very important piece of post war design from the Netherlands. And one of my personal favourites to be honest. We also have a very rare white version in stock which is visible on the last picture.
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. Feel free to inquire for options.
