Rosemarie Rico Baltensweiler floor lamp Switzerland 1951





Beautiful and rare early version of the model 600 adjustable floor lamp designed by Rosemarie and Rico Baltensweiler for Baltensweiler AG in Switzerland in 1951. The lamps has a heavy base and a smart way to adjust it. You can change the angle, height, and where it points to get the light just right for what you need. A nice feature is the switch to turn it on and off, this is hidden at the top of the lampshade. It’s a small detail that shows how carefully it was made. What’s even more impressive is that this lamp is still in its original and really good condition. It’s a great example of a well-made design that not only lights up a room but also looks great while doing it.


Le Corbusier – a fan from the very beginning Since some architect friends expressed interest in the lights, they had a first edition of ten copies built. The furniture store “Knoll International” soon became aware of the lights and commissioned a whole series. There, architect and furniture designer Le Corbusier himself came across the Baltensweiler lights and adopted them for his model apartments. The breakthrough was achieved.


Lamp uses an E27 bulb up to 100 watt. 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.
