P1040007No, we are not going to keep all the goodies to ourselves when we come across original documentation in the form of catalogs or brochures. The field of lighting still holds surprises.

The above catalog dated 1962 was produced by a Dutch distributor of lighting in Amsterdam. Extraordinary quality lighting is represented in here, awesome models appealing to the design conscious modernist eye.

For good measure let’s start and have a look at these fabulous colorful Italian glass lamps by Venini.Superb color schemes!


Next, are some more very fascinating modernist Scandinavian models.P1040012We are blessed again by some Italian chandeliers made by Salviati on the left side of the page below:


P1040015It is never too late to learn about Bruno Gatta’s Stilnovo Italian lamps, shown on the left .On the right, are the metal and glass combo lamps designed  by Per Iversen, architect by trade, from Denmark, who designed for Louis Poulsen Company. What a terrific choice for the true conoscenti this catalog was in 1962.

P1040016On the right side above again two rare models by Stilnovo and on the left side top a design in perspex by Yki Nummi and on the bottom a metal lamp by the  Danish design duo Niels Esmann and Hans C. Jensen.
