Rico and Rosemarie Baltensweiler have been designing and producing lights in their factory in Ebikon, Switzerland, since the 1950s. This rare clip-on lamp shows a lot of what BALTENSWEILER stood for at that time: perfect workmanship with the best functionality, designed with cool elegance. The model is easy to imagine as a prop in historical James Bond films in the villain's office. Due to the arrangement of 2 tilting and 2 swivel joints, the lamp can be brought safely into almost any position and only lights up where required.
