Midgard TYP 113 Clamp Lamp - Limited Edition

Midgard, a remarkable German lighting manufacturer founded in 1919 by Curt Fischer held the first patents for the adjustable light. The TYP 113 is of particular importance as Walter Gropius, a committed fan, adopted it for the Bauhaus school, adding them to the classrooms, atelier and faculty housing at the Dessau School. Photos and film footage of the pre war era show the TYP 113 in Germany as well as in the US after faculty members crossed the Atlantic.
In celebration of their 100 year anniversary, Midgard chose to produce a limited run of 100 pieces of the TYP 113, using original techniques and materials. In collaboration with Thonet, who partnered to bend the nickel plated steel arms, thoughtful attention is given to craftsmanship to produce a truly special heirloom piece for home or office.
The early 20th century inventor and designer Curt Fischer spent time researching ways in which he might be able to improve the light quality in his town's factories during the 19-teens. Upon visiting and speaking with the workers, it was discovered that the downward-casting overhead lighting created shadows on their work surfaces. And so the first articulating lamp was designed and patented. This adjustable table lamp even allows for an optional asymmetrical rotatable shade to block direct light from the user's eye.
