Vintage Perforated Metal Lamp in the style of Guariche & Mategot c.1950

110.00

This sweet 1950s task light is in the style of French mid-century modern designers Mathieu Mategot and Pierre Guariche. It’s possibly from the ‘Firefly’ lighting series by Daydream Lighting (Australia) which employed perforated metal shades for a ‘sparkling’ lighting effect.

The clamp is chromed steel. The light has an almost 360 degree swivel. The ball joint is a brilliant design which doesn’t lose it's position and yet is completely adjustable. The mechanism is so simple that it can be tightened with a screwdriver if ever it does start to loosen.
