Adjustable metal desk lamp
First produced in the 1920s under the Midgard brand, the MACHINE LAMP was one of classic modernism’s first adjustable lamp designs. Marking the relaunch of the Midgard brand in January 2017, the work lamp designed by the brand’s founder Curt Fischer went into production again: an extremely versatile light source, thanks to its modular construction and configurability.
Available in different table, wall, ceiling and floor designs at selected retailers in Europe and at ply.com, the MACHINE LAMP is now offered in two ranges called Midgard TYP 500 (featuring the historical base) and TYP 550 (boasting a rotating base). A special feature of the TYP 500 and TYP 550 lamps are their maintenance-free joints.
Curt Fischer had found a solution to ensure that the screws of the lamp's adjustable arm would not loosen and hence would need no re-tightening, even when the arm was subjected to frequent movement.
