Vintage 60s Lightolier Lytegem Desk Lamp

This a MidCentury vintage Lightolier Lytegem task light with telescoping chrome arm and metal cube base. The globe is a stunning matte finish in a warm grey/taupe color. The arm is chrome. The base is a gun metal grey.

This is a modern light designed by Michael Lax in 1965. This desk lamp is an original from the 60s, and was made in Japan. All original markings are on the bottom of the lamp.

Designed for flexibility this lamp folds to be approx. 7" high and telescopes up to a full height of 16.5". The chrome arm also tilts from side to side and the shade swivels 360.

This has the orginal wiring, with on/off switch on the side of teh base. There is a high and low setting, which still function. The bulb is included.

The globe does have some scratches and a small dent. Please see pictures. It give is a great industrial feel and does not detract from the beauty of this lamp.

This is a classic addition to any modern decor!

I offer in person pick up or shipping via USPS. Shipping for $10.99.
