We seem to be on a bit of 50s tip today – not intentionally, but with so much great design from the era, it’s hardly surprising. And the Wilhem Braun-Feldweg Mondello pendant lamp is very much an unsung example.
The work of industrial designer Braun-Feldweg in 1959, the lamp is based on the ‘drop-like bubbles’ formed in glass blowing. Indeed, the shade itself is made of Triplex opal glass, with a matt nickel-plated holder and rosette and a cloth-covered cable completing the light.
Both simplistic and stylish, it’s unlikely to date for many years to come – if ever. Yours for £185.
