Richard Hutten - Gispen - Chrome Cube Lamps (2) - Model 'The Switch'
Netherlands - 2000-Present - Plastic, Steel

In good working condition, two minimalistic Dutch Design cube table lamps by Dutch designer Richard Hutten (1967) for NgispeN, a design from 2005.

The "The Switch" cube lamp has an iconic and sleek design. No searching for that tiny button or following the wire to find the switch. No, just move the large black handle and the lamp will turn on or off.

These two table lamps are in good condition (old-stock), but may have some old age spots, some scratches and irregularities.

Both table lamps include the original black box. Both lamps were fitted with a EU plug, because both wires had a British one before. If desired, they can also be fitted with an British plug (for UK citizens).

Dimensions: Height: 17 cm (measured with a mirror reflector bulb) x height: 10 cm (without mirror reflector bulb) x width: 8 cm x depth: 8 cm.
*** This lot comes without the mirror reflector bulbs ***
