Attractive black and white fifties floor light by Willem Hagoort. Very dynamic design: The horizontal arm can rotate 360 degrees around the stand, and can also move up and down. The matted black shade can also move in all directions. This model is pictured in the 1959 ‘Goed Wonen’ magazine.

Hagoort was one of the 1950s Dutch companies which became successful producing small metal furniture and lighting designs the new modernist style. The origin for using slender shapes of metal for their lighting designs can be found in the work of designers such as Hoogervorst, Rietveld, Stilnovo and Cosack.
