After the second world war, Artimeta was one of the Dutch companies which became successful producing small metal furniture and lighting designs in a new, innovative European style. The origin for using slender shapes and colorful metal for their lighting designs can be found in the work of French and Italian designers from the same era. Besides the particular collaboration with Mathieu Matégot, Artimeta’s development team followed along designing in the manner of Pierre Guariche and Serge Mouille. The shade’s design of this fantastic floor lamp is almost equal to some creations of Mouille.

This lamp has a very cool circular base, an attractive black and white insect-like stand and balance arm. The organic matted olive green shade can be positioned in all directions.
Very good condition, all parts are checked. Nice proportioned design and very symbolic for post-war Dutch modernism.
