We are happy to offer a beautifully designed large metal black and white desk lamp
by Hala Zeist.
Nice color combination that fits in many interiors.
There is no more marking. Hala lamps were often only drawn with a sticker label on the inside of the lampshade or on the lamp holder.
Hala lamps are well documented and this lamp appears in the 1967 product list with model number 147.
It cost 39, 25 Dutch guilders at that time, which was quite expensive.
Triangular shaped black base. Tilt-Able-to a certain extent-double tube and large black shadow.
Shadow and base cover are made of aluminum.
The basis is heavy, but not over the top.
The triangular base is a typical Herman Busquet design that also appeared on his famous Solar series from the fifties.
About the designer and the company
Hala was founded in 1932 by Herman Busquet as an importer of German work lamps, but soon began to make his own lamps. Forced by the late 1930s recession the company was forced to simplify its designs and standardize its pars. When after the Second World War interior designers were looking for "new" modernist lamps, they found the austere Hala designs by Busquet a perfect fit for their needs. Hence in the 1950s, Hala became a symbol of the new sober designs of Mid Century modernism in the Netherlands.
Hala lamps from the 1950s to 1970s are highly appreciated for their designs.
While Herman Busquet retired from his work and company in the second half of the 1950s, the design of this 147-lamp is not technically his, but then again the basis of the lamp is one of his (older) designs and so can be the shadow.
The lamp takes 1 E27 lamp with screw fitting.
