Paul McCobb (USA 1917-69)

Circular low table. Teak wood and steel.

Dia.90cm; Height 38cm

This table was designed as part of a range of simple mahogany wood and steel tables. They were retailed by Metz & Co., in Amsterdam (image 3). The table has a light grey painted finish which we presume is original. The brochure in image 2 shows the tables with a natural wood finish – Although the Metz & Co., image (image 3) shows one of the tables with a painted finish.

Aldo van den Nieuwelaar (Netherlands, 1944-2010)

TC2 Floor lamp designed in 1969. White enamelled metal.

This early production lamp was produced by Artimeta Soest, Netherlands in 1972.

Inspired by the Dutch Modernist’s use of minimalist and geometric forms Aldo v.d.Nieuwelaar designed a range of products from furniture to carpet, sculptures and building schemes. From 1968 he designed a series of innovative fluorescent lighting manufactured in white and chromed steel tubes.

This floor lamp was from the TC series that were designed in 1969, originally produced in very small numbers. In 1972 Artimeta took these lamps into production – They produced limited numbers of the design until 1974 when production stopped.

The design includes the transformer in the base that acts as a counter weight. Amazingly they were also designed to be hung on the wall. They have holes underneath that enables them to clip onto the wall of so desired although they work best as minimalist light sculptures and give off a superb even warm light. The top section can be positioned by twisting the stem whilst the base remains fixed.

196 cm high 73 cm wide 15 cm deep (diameter of white tube 4cm)
