“Figuration” Table Lamp by E.R. Nele for Temde Leuchten
Commonly mis-attributed to Swiss architect and industrial designer Max Bill, this series of globe lamps - known as the “Figuration” line - were actually designed by Eva Renée Nele for German-Swiss lighting manufacturer Temde Leuchten. This example, the T-313 table lamp formation has a cluster of nine opal glass globes atop a tulip base in white enameled steel. A small label affixed to the main column reads “Made in Switzerland.
Condition: All original globes are in excellent vintage condition with no major scratches or imperfections. The plastic globe holders have been replaced with identical vintage Temde parts and show some signs of wear. The steel lamp base has been hand polished.
Dimensions: 16” diameter x 27” height
