These stunning lamps represent a classic piece of British design from the 1970’s. They’d sit well at either end of a long mid century sideboard or would make for some super bedside illumination. The lamps stand on anodised aluminium tulip bases with white and smoked purple shades. The dark purple outer shade diffuses the light, providing a soft luminescence. The on / off switches are stylish little ball chain pull chords.
Robert Welch graduated from The Royal College of Art in 1955 and was responsible for many iconic designs still enjoyed today. From the start, Welch was passionately driven to design highly functional, affordable products which possessed a timeless elegant beauty. He demonstrated this with his first major success – pioneering the introduction of stainless steel cutlery to the UK. He steadily gained a reputation for excellence in both design and manufacture which lead to a constant stream of commissions, both commercial and privately from celebrities and royalty. Robert Welch designs and silver commissions began being selected by museums and many are held by institutions such as the Victoria and Albert Museum and British Museum in London and MoMA in New York
Please note that the two lamps currently operate from a single shared plug but you’ll be able to easily split them if you’d prefer them to be on separate plugs.
