Vintage Modern Lamp, 1970s-1980s, signed. Stacked acrylic provides edgy, angular, yet airy silhouette. Great for desk or table. Custom rewire included.
My Vintage Stacked Acrylic Lamp would make Goldilocks proud, don’t you agree? Not too edgy, not too tame
- just right! Surprisingly weighty, its alternating, stacked acrylic squares provide negative space & luminosity to keep this lamp visually “light” and interesting. It’s compact size makes it perfect for desk or table top.
Signed by its designer / maker, the lamp was handmade. As such, slight variations between the acrylic squares may be noted, but only upon close inspection. Signature appears to be Omir 9. Cord/plug age indicate this lamp was constructed in the 1970s.
In addition to the name of the designer/maker, the lamp was given a “copyleft” registration, which is very unusual. Copyleft registration was developed in the 1970s and is the primary precursor to Creative Commons designation for artistic / photographic works, which allows a creative work to be shared with others for their use and possible modification. It’s construction would indicate that it was hand made, with quality hardware and parts. so it may be that Omir designed his lamp for a company and retained some of his rights, planning ahead by giving them permission to make derivative works inspired from his design, such as a product line.
LOVE the lamp but don’t live in the Dallas area? No problem! I am happy to ship worldwide following online payment via PayPal.
My Vintage Modern Stacked Acrylic Lamp is looking for its next home or office to illuminate. Might it be yours..?
As always, thanks for looking!
In excellent vintage condition, there are no chips, scratches, or signs of wear on the acrylic sections of this beauty. There is one slight scratch on the nickel connector at the neck, so small as to only be visible on close inspection. It does not show on photos. Overall, my Vintage Modern Stacked Acrylic Lamp looks to have been well cared for in its previous life.
