Design from 1932 by Herman Theodoor Jan Anthoin Busquet for Hala Zeist.

Around 1930, Busquet became the head of design at Hala, one of the first lighting manufacturers in The Netherlands.

Influenced by "De Stijl" and "Bauhaus", the designs are very modest and "form follows function".
Busquet worked for Hala until 1955 and died in 1977.

Original Hala colour: "Reseda" green Please see colour card, number 4.
