This quintessential Midgard lamp was Curt Fischer's first design in 1919. Brought back to life in 2019 in this limited edition run of 100 pieces. Each lamp is numbered 1 - 100.

Midgard, a remarkable German lighting manufacturer founded in 1919 by Curt Fischer held the first patents for the adjustable light. The TYP 113 is of particular importance as Walter Gropius, a committed fan, adopted it for the Bauhaus school, adding them to the classrooms, atelier and faculty housing at the Dessau School. Photos and film footage of the pre war era show the TYP 113 in Germany as well as in the US after faculty members crossed the Atlantic.

Articulating, positionable table clamp lamp providing direct illumination of work surface with satisfying new old stock from the early 20th century bakelite switch on shade. Enameled rotating bias-cut shade in black. Each lamp is numbered 1 - 100.
