The Wagenfeld lamp counts as one of the most famous lamps of the Bauhaus period. The WG25 version of the world-famous lamp was designed in 1925 by Wilhelm Wagenfeld (1900-1990). Unlike the original WG24, the WG25 has a nickel-plated metal tube instead of a glass one.
The glass foot is identical on both models. After an apprenticeship in a silverware factory and training at a drawing academy, Wilhelm Wagenfeld was accepted as a fellow at the world-famous Bauhaus workshop, where he created the his classic lamp, also known as the Wagenfeld Lamp or Bauhaus Lamp.
With his metal and glass designs, Wagenfeld became one of the most important industrial designers of his time. The W lamp by Wilhelm Wagenfeld is available in numerous editions. The WG25 has the typical opal-coloured glass dome.
The base of the lamp is made of glass and the central pipe from nickel-plated metal. The Wagenfeld lamp is manufactured based on Wilhelm Wagenfeld’s original dimensions and materials by Tecnolumen. Tecnolumen produces the unique patented and authorised reedition of the Wagenfeld lamp.Thus all lamps bear the Bauhaus and Tecnolumen logos.
