Gispen by Wim Rietveld Panama lamp


Very rare Dutch Design wall lamp, designed by Wim Rietveld. This lamp, marketed by the Gispen company, was designed by top designer Wim Rietveld. A black hood is placed on one arm, equipped with 3 joints, which is reminiscent of a sun hat / sombrero, it is generally assumed that the name of this model; "Panama" is derived from this. The model still looks very modern today, but it dates back to 1956, an exceptionally progressive piece of design for the time. At the rear, mounted against the wall plate, a red-colored "key" is placed. The lamp can be placed in the desired position by adjusting the hinges with the key. Under the hood we see a plastic hood, in virtually unused new condition, which spreads the light further, as it were, a so-called "Diffuser" that provides indirect and beautiful diffused light. This model, which is known in the Gispen catalog as No. 4050 is also part of the collection of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. Electricity has been checked, functioning is perfect, can be used immediately. Comes from the first owner, all complete including wall plate, in an exceptionally beautiful condition, no major scratches or dents, or strange discolourations. Very rare model, in this color and condition, a real collector's item and a beautiful, stable investment in your home or office. Type: Gispen Panama Designer: Wim Rietveld Year: 1956 Hood height: 24 cm Diameter hood: 40 cm Maximum length from wall: 100 cm

Brand / designer:Gispen

Gispen is al meer dan honderd jaar ontwerper, producent en leverancier van designmeubilair en kantoormeubelen. In 1916 werd het bedrijf opgericht door Willem Hendrik Gispen. Deze naam kennen we ook wel onder de afkorting W.H. Gispen. Na zijn studie werd W.H. Gispen ontwerper bij een Rotterdamse fabriek voor siersmeedwerken. Dit noemen we ook wel een kunstsmederij. Ondernemend als hij was, nam hij in 1916 de fabriek over en gaf het de naam Kunstsmederij W.H. Gispen & Co. Sindsdien is Gispen een begrip geworden. Het designmerk staat bekend om haar klassiekers. Ontwerpen als 412 stoel, de Giso lampencollectie en het President bureau zijn toonbeelden van innovatie, design en kwaliteit. Een selectie van historische Gispen producten wordt nog steeds gemaakt.
