Wilhelm Wagenfeld MT8 modernist lamp

Mt8 After receiving a book on Bauhaus for Christmas, I'm really getting into some of its stylish and functional designs. None more so than the MT8 Lamp, designed by Wilhelm Wagenfeld.

Dating back to 1924, but still made today to the strict design blueprints of the original, it was ideal for providing both ambient and task light. It features a translucent globe made of clear and opaline glass, sat on a nickel-plated metal base, with plenty of light courtesy of the 75w bulb.

All of today's lamps are consecutively numbered under the base and bear the Bauhaus logos. Available from Moma in the US and SCP and Aram in the UK, expect to pay around £500.
