Vintage modern Brutalist lamp in cast, Cubist – style stacked bronze, mixed metals. Small size great for desk, accent lighting, more. Signed. Ready to ship, as found. Rewire & custom options.

Let Your Style Shine with my brutally fab lighting find, ca 1974! Comparatively small in stature for authentic Brutalist lighting, this roughly textural piece is more than ready and able to infuse modern, geometric edginess into those spots where its much larger counterparts cannot go.
Constructed as a roughly squared column, each side of the patinated bronze lamp is comprised of a vertical panel of stacked, cast bronze squares. Additional surface texture throughout includes negative surface variation acquired during the casting process as well as what appears to be randomly applied/hardened/patinated mixed molten metals to all surfaces. All sides rest together on a squared, cast bronze base with central negative space..

In addition to its small size, this piece is notable as well for its unusual maker’s mark. Thought to be an artist- or sculptor-created studio piece, the unusual placement of the maker’s copyright and signature on the top-front corner of the base is in keeping with where an artist or sculptor might sign a piece. As to the maker’s identity: I’ve researched the hard-to-read signature with no success. Who knows what you might discover should you take up the search..?

OVERALL: Very Good Vintage Condition. No chips, cracks or repairs may be detected. In keeping with Brutalist design philosophy, variations in surface structure as well as color variations that have and will continue to take develop are the intent of the lamp’s maker.

ELECTRICAL: Brutalist décor and signed studio artwork are both considered collectible, therefore this lamp is being offered “as found.” Rewire service is available, should the lamp’s new owner desire. Custom lampshades are available for order as well.
