Vintage German Doria Hand Blown Glass Sphere on Chrome Base Lamp, Germany circa 1970

This exceptional artifact of modern German design reflects the extreme interest in modernism across Europe during this period. The vintage German lamp pictured from Germany circa 1970 combines a sense of the futire with its chromed metal circular base fitted with an enormous hand blown sphere of glass. The sphere was purposely created to be filled with random bubbles and pockets of air within the glass that capture and refract light from the interior bulbs to demonstrate its hand crafted origin. When the sphere is removed the lighting structure is revealed showing four light sockets of different heights along with an arrangements of solid chromed spheres also at various heights. The arrangement is reminiscent of the Atomium structure in Brussels, Belgium that made its debut in 1958 and ushered in a physical embodiment of the atomic age. This unique lamp was always designed to be seen from all directions and functiuons as both a light source with a sculptural component thst is visually arresting.
