The striped and translucent large glass shell with white glass interior globe and bulb fitting, designed to be flush to the ceiling

Germany, circa 1950
The ceiling light embodies the 'form follows function' advanced by Wagenfeld's Bauhaus training. Through the employment of simple shapes, a circular base and spherical shades, Wagenfeld achieves a visual simplicity and, in terms of time and materials, great economy. The lamp's working parts are visible; the opaque internal glass shade, a type formerly used only for industrial lighting, helps to diffuse the light while the decorative lines on the outer shade adds a touch of geometric energy to the overall composition, especially when lit
