A lovely bit of design and right now, this Kaiser 6878 table lamp is up for no money.
This is a bizarre one. Last week, we spotted an interesting Kaiser New Bauhaus lamp on eBay, an early 60s collaboration between Kaiser and original Bauhaus metal workshop 'master' Christian Dell. Now, today, we've found a brand new reissue from the same team – the Kaiser idell 6631 table lamp by Christian Dell for Fritz Hansen.
The lamp on eBay was a 1960s project, but the 6631 lamp is an original 1930s modernist design for Kaiser, which is now reissued by Fritz Hansen. It is indeed a classic – available in black, ivory, white, red and dark green, the lamps are made in steel and brass and the lampshades are hand painted in high gloss.
It also features a world-patented swivel joint and an 'original Kaiser-idell' label. Price? A less-then-cheap £588.
A really special design – and this 1960s Kaiser New Bauhaus lamp is just £2.20 right now.
According to the seller, Kaiser lights got together with original Bauhaus metal workshop 'master' Christian Dell in the early 60s, prodicing the New Bauhaus Kaiser light series as a result. This is a lamp from that series, with a base made of solid teakwood, two straight arms of chromed brass and a 'cubic' dark grey / black shade.
The seller says it is in 'very good' condition and has undergone a serious clean. Right now it's a steal at that £2.20 price, plus postage from Germany.
A interesting design for not a lot of cash – this Kaiser 6885 table lamp.
Dating back to the 1960s, but definitely inspired by the modernist era, the light has a lampshade made of sheet metal lacquered cream, a brass stem with ball joint for adjusting the angle and a base of cast iron with a metal cover that's lacquered in cream.
Not a design we've encountered before, the lamp is described as being in 'good condition' and in 'full working order', you can pick it up at the moment for 99 pence.
