The Wagenfeld lamp belongs to the most famous lamps of the Bauhaus time. It was designed by Wilhelm Wagenfeld (1900-1990) in 1924. After an apprenticeship in a silverware factory and training at a drawing academy, he was accepted as a fellow at the world-famous Bauhaus workshop, where he created the design classic W24, the “Wagenfeld lamp”, also known as “Bauhaus lamp”. With his designs of metal and glass, Wagenfeld became one of the most important industrial designers of his time.
The lampshade is also available as a replacement part if it breaks. Instead of disposing of the whole lamp just because the lampshade did not survive the journey in the moving van, the shade can simply be replaced, enabling the Wagenfeld lamp to prove its exceptional quality for several more years.
