Silk table lamp
Garth Roberts, Nicolo Taliani
Conceived in 1957 by Julius T. Kalmar, the iconic Fliegenbein BL floor lamp over the years has become the basis for a product range including table, standing and hanging lights. The year 2017 marks a further step in the evolution of the Fliegenbein collection thanks to the launch of Fliegenbein PL pendant light conceived by Garth Roberts, Creative Director of Kalmar Werkstätten. Mirroring the silhouette of the Fliegenbein SL standing lamp, the new pendant produces overhead ambient light that filters through a pleated silken shade and a frosted glass diffuser. The elongated shade injects modern personality into a space. Fliegenbein PL also features single and double tubes—available in light grey, dark grey, or brown matte lacquers—in its shade and mounting plate that harmonize with the overall Fliegenbein series’ signature splayed leg. A wheat-coloured electrical cord dances around the fixture’s braided-steel suspension wire.
Fliegenbein TL translates Julius T. Kalmar’s 1957 floor lamp of the same name for a table environment. Like the original, the smaller product features two bent metal tubes merging into a single shaft. A pleated silken shade suspends near the top of this steel column, which is painstakingly finished in light and dark gray or brown matte lacquers. Fliegenbein is a versatile addition to both modern and transitional interior environments, and the three available colorways adapt the composition for industrial or organic design schemes.
