Description A unique pair of large table lamps consisting of a striking spiral screw base and custom fabric shades.

The substantial concentric hardwood spirals were used in the textile industry in the southern part of Belgium in the late 19th century. The mills in this area were spinning textiles, mostly wool, into yarns, these screws played a significant role in the production process, as they were used to wash and rinse the wool before it was processed further. Each individual screw was carved by hand at the time.
The screws of the lamps can be placed mirrored, which allows for a striking positioning of the pair.

The hardwood of the spiral screws retains its original, beautiful patina. The custom fabric shades in an alabaster color provide soft and pleasant lighting. The lamp fittings/bulb holders can be adjusted into different directions/angles.

The total height of the lamp (including shade) is 95 cm / 37.4 in.
The shade itself is 28 cm / 11 in high. The shade has a diameter of 42 cm / 16.5 in.
Styles / Movements Brutalist, Campaign, Modern
