a classic mid-century lamp by the company that changed the way America works. as stated on their website:
“Initially, Dazor lights were used simply as table lamps and the company grew to employ a dozen people. It was not until the eruption of World War II that Dazor lamps became famous for their high efficiency and lower costs. The government found that Dazor’s lamps helped to conserve energy and were cheaper than the traditional costly overhead lighting. They were so impressed that they replaced the overhead lighting with the more energy efficient Dazor lamps and the company grew very rapidly.
