Bold lamp! Functional and full of stature.
Design: Sybold van Ravesteyn (1889-1983), the most headstrong, mystifying architect and 'einzelganger' in modern Dutch architecture. Between 1925 and 1935 he developed himself - just like his fellow townsman Gerrit Rietveld - into one of the most renowned new-businesslike designers in the Netherlands. Van Ravesteijn also liked ornaments and monumentalism.
The table lamp SVR01 is a design from 1925-1926. Altogether the power plug, linen cord, cylinder with a charming on/off switch on top, standard socket, incandescent lamp and a self-carrying tube show the essence of a table lamp.
