Description This rare floor lamp was designed by P.E.L. Izeren and produced by the Dutch company Genneper Molen in 1932. The base is made of solid natural oak with interlocking elements in a darker Macassar ebony wood. The new ivory shade offers a nice contrast with the colors and grains of the wood.

The details, materials and nearly modernist appearance of the design are exemplary for the Haagse School style. This style was not so much inspired by the Classic European Art Deco capitals such as Paris and Vienna but more by other national and international architectural developments such as the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. The influential magazine Wendingen published a series of articles on Wright still relatively unknown at the time in 1925 and the renowned architect Jan Wils also played an important role in the orientation towards Wrights work in The Netherlands. In its particular application of geometric shapes, primary colours and its sophisticated cubist division of the surface, the Haagse School designers were also aware of De Stijl movement, led by contemporaries such as Gerrit Rietveld and Piet Mondriaan.
