Ruth Hildegard Geyer Raack was one of the women, who studied at BAUHAUS and had to assert herself in a male world. From her work of the German postwar period comes this impressive, adjustable floor lamp. Along the central stand tube, the foot can be moved by means of a screw, resulting in a tilt of the lamp. The lamp head is adjustable by means of a ball joint. The two separately switchable bulbs under the original screens give a variety of uses. As a room light or reading light, this sculptural, rare floor lamp from the German post-war design, this light always cuts a fine figure.
