Description Constructivist table lamp in polished, reflective aluminum designed by Paul Mayen for Habitat circa 1968. The Spanish-born and Cooper-Union and Columbia University educated Mayen founded Habitat in the early 1950’s; Habitat would later morph into Intrex. The geometry of the interlocking planes in the present lamp resulted from formal explorations in chrome performed by Mayen as holiday gifts for friends beginning around 1960. Several of these efforts were included in a MoMA show titled “Greetings” in 1966 (see photo below). In fine working condition, with original cord and Habitat tag. This is the larger and scarcer size. Takes five bulbs.
