Bauhaus Lamp Wagenfeld

The magic of frozen light

Professor Wilhelm Wagenfeld was fascinated by "the magic of frozen light". What he meant by this is shown by the dome of his timelessly elegant table lamp. The Wagenfeld lamp, which has won several awards, was designed in 1924 by the then 24-year-old Bauhaus journeyman in the workshop of the Weimar Bauhaus.

It follows the design principle "form follows function" and is considered an icon of modern industrial design. As an outstanding example of modern product design, it was included in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

"To be useful is to be beautiful"

Wilhelm Wagenfeld

One of the most important German product designers, inventor of the famous Bauhaus lamp and many other beautiful things. A wonderful person who liked to pass on his knowledge.

One of his first designs became his most famous: a simple shade made of opal glass, the shaft made of nickel-plated steel - Wagenfeld's Bauhaus lamp WA24 is one of the design icons.
