By Gerrit Rietveld
Gerrit Rietveld (1888 – 1964) limited edition 200 pieces
»Maker of things – sometimes of magical things« (Peter Smithson, 1965)
Gerrit Thomas Rietveld’s Red and Blue Chair brought him international renown. But the architect, designer and member of the famous Dutch De Stijl Group is less well-known for his lamps. For example, the hanging lamp, which he designed for a doctor's surgery in 1922 and which is now a true classic of the Tecta collection.
Rietveld’s light shines on
Rietveld’s small tafellampje is a treasure that is still waiting to be discovered. He designed this table lamp with its strict geometric shape in 1925. Surprisingly modern for its time, it has never been produced in series before. After consulting Rietveld’s heirs, Tecta decided to give the lamp the attention it deserves. The exact dimensions of the original drawing served as the basis of a small, exclusive series.
From 2019 it will be available as a first limited edition of 200 numbered and signed lamps. The tafellampje features some enchanting details – just like in the hanging lamp, you will find a varnished luminaire inside the lampshade. Made of aluminium,
