Haagse School wall lamp (Sold)
  Extremely rare wooden wall lamp in the so called "Haagse school" style. This lamp is strongly influenced by- or is a cross-over to the "de Stijl" movement. It has a lot of architectural influences in its design of Gerrit Rietveld and Frank Lloyd Wright. The Haagse school was mostly influenced by Lloyd Wright. Two important architects of the Haagse school are Hendrik Petrus Berlage and Willem Dudok. The most important interior designers of the Haagse school are, to our opinion: Jan Wils, Henk Wouda and Cor Alons. The vertical round lamp standard is an exception in this design which makes that the emphasis not only is on the three horizontal square "layers" of this lamp but also, being positioned out of centre, providing a playful interruption in these lines and therefor making this design more balanced. Looking to the work of Dudok, for instants the Catharina van Rennesschool Hilversum, you can also see the tight lines which are interrupted by round forms. It is hard to attribute a lamp like this but as explained above it is absolute a Haagse school lamp and problably a one-of-a-kind. The white lamp shade is not original. Dimensions: H x W = 37 x 10 cm. Origin: Dutch. Year: early 1920's.
