Product name: Red Panama wall lamp by Wim Rietveld for Gispen, 1950s
Wim Rietveld designed this red Panama Hat Wall Lamp, No. 4050, in 1956. It has become difficult to find a complete and original version. The red wrench can easily become lost, and the polyester cover, or diffuser, was not resistant to the heat of traditional light bulbs.
The lamp on offer still has both original elements, although the diffuser needs careful treatment.
The paint on the shade of the lamp is in good original condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina.
For those interested: In the Discover section of our website you can find an amusing article on how, some 60 years ago, Gispen informed Dutch consumers on the full range of Panama hat lamps.
