1930s Suspended Opalescent Globe Light
An early ‘modernist’ opalescent globe pendant light with original rod & monks cap fittings, probably German or Swedish, c.1930
The model No. HL99 suspended light was created by an anonymous German designer at Tecnolumen sometime around 1900. The functional and radically reductive shape proving that some 25 years before the Bauhaus, designers were creating comparable lighting products. This ceiling light, however, was not intended for domestic use but for the working environment, providing an all-round good light that was easy to clean.
