A beautiful adjustable wall lamp model “Panama” designed by Wim Rietveld and manufactured by Gispen in the Netherlands, circa 1950. This iconic Dutch design lamp is made of high quality yellow lacquered metal, making it a true eye-catcher. It has a black with grey metal base and a red metal ornament that can be used as a tool for repositioning the lamp. This versatile piece would make a wonderful addition to any modern interior! It remains in good original condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina. About the designer: The youngest son of architect and designer Gerrit Rietveld, Wim Rietveld (1924-1985) is considered to be one of the pioneers of Dutch Industrial design. In addition to furniture he also designs agricultural machinery, boats, trains and household equipment. After accomplishing the School for Crafts, Wim Rietveld was trained to become an instrument maker. In 1950 he started an evening course in Industrial Design at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague. He combined his study with a job in his fathers’ workshop. Being impressed by the high quality of his graduation work, Willem H. Gispen offered him a job in his company Gispen. In 1949, Wim Rietveld joined Gispen as a designer, taking over the job of W.H. Gispen, who retired from the company that year. He introduced ‘furniture for simple interiors’, in line with the thoughts of “Good Living”. At Gispen, Rietveld mainly designed office furniture but he also sidestepped to living room lights.
