Design by Curt Fischer
Powder-coated aluminum shade; powder-coated steel frame; fabric covered cord
Made in Denmark by Midgard

The early 20th century inventor and designer Curt Fischer spent time researching ways in which he might be able to improve the light quality in his town's factories during the 19-teens. Upon visiting and speaking with the workers, it was discovered that the downward-casting overhead lighting created shadows on their work surfaces. And so the first articulating lamp was designed and patented. Used on the wall or desktop, this adjustable lamp even allows for an optional asymmetrical rotatable shade to block direct light from the user's eye.

After nearly 100 years surviving war and depression, Midgard was purchased and brought back to life in 2014 by long time collector David Einsiedler and his partner Joke Rasch. Using the exact tooling and machines from the original factory and staying true to the designs and materials used decades before, Midgard is now a reputable supplier of lighting for homes as well as many large corporations who wish to outfit their offices with quality, functional and well designed lighting.

Articulating, positionable floor lamp providing direct illumination of work surface with satisfying bakelite switch on shade.
