1960’s Cedric Hartman 1UWV leeslamp. Icoon!
“When A-Gent of Style started working for Veere Grenney a few years ago, the learned decorator told him one day as they were sourcing lamps together that “this lamp was one of the most iconic lamps of the 20th century. Make sure you know it”. (A-Gent of Style, by Fabricebana, 26 feb 2015)”
“Fifty years ago in Omaha, Neb., Cedric Hartman came up with a design that foretold the future of lighting: a slim metal floor lamp with a small triangular shade that all but disappeared in a room. The act of unwrapping a beautifully packaged Hartman feels almost ceremonial, as if you are revealing something precious and exquisite. (It actually comes with white gloves, the kind worn by handlers of expensive artwork). (The New York Times Style Magazine by Tom Delavan, 22 sep 2014)”
