About this designer: Wilhelm Wagenfeld
Born in 1900 in Bremen, Germany, Wagenfeld is perhaps most famous for his work and teaching with the Bauhaus collective in the 1920's. After leaving them he continued to teach and design in Germany throughout the Nazi regime, eventually being sent to the Eastern Front and finishing the war in a Russian prisoner of war camp. Wagenfeld was heavily involved in design until his death in 1990 in Stuttgart. Aram Store stocks Wagenfeld’s eponymous table lamp, perhaps one of the most beloved and perennially popular pieces to be designed during the Bauhaus movement.
About this brand: Tecnolumen GmbH
TECNOLUMEN ® was founded by Walter Schnepel in Bremen in 1980. At first, the company produced only one lamp: namely, the Wilhelm Wagenfeld table lamp WA 24 that was originally designed by Wilhelm Wagenfeld at the Bauhaus in 1924. The company’s palette of products was soon augmented by additional designs from the Bauhaus era, including items designed by Gyula Pap, Hans Przyrembel and Marianne Brandt. As the years went by, the line of merchandise was expanded to include lamps, door handles, small pieces of furniture, and accessories. Today, TECNOLUMEN ® not only manufactures re-editions of Bauhaus designs, but also crafts designs by contemporary designers.
