Calculate shipping cost
Aldo van den Nieuwelaar (1944-2010) was one of the most outstanding Dutch designers of the 1960s and 1970s. After his graduation from the academy of arts, he started to work for the highly influential Dutch designer Benno Premsela. Inspired by his employer, the De Stijl movement and Minimalist art of the 1960s Van den Nieuwelaar developed a stringent geometrical style. In 1969, shortly after opening his own office, Van den Nieuwelaar came up with a series of lamps which were all based on the application of fluorescent tubes. The entire range was exhibited at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and subsequently taken into limited batch production by Artimeta. The production run of this particular model, called, "TC2," lasted for some two years (1972-74) and came to a standstill at a total of 175 copies: 127 executed in white lacquered metal and a mere 48 were chrome plated. As the particular lamp offered is numbered 21 (see picture). It was most likely produced in 1972. It is not only a floor lamp, there is also a possibility of attaching the lamp to the wall, parallel to the ceiling. Minor hair crack in the chrome (see last pictures).
