Z-Lamp or Diplomat by Louis Kalff

SKU: 0535

Original 1950s Z or Diplomat lamp by Louis Kalff for Philips. This well-known desk lamp has a solid brass frame in the shape of a Z. The lampshade is made of black metal and contains a brass plate with the text 'Philips'. The round opening in the lampshade is designed so that you can see the top of the lamp. These lamps are used with a top mirror bulb. The lampshade is white on the inside.
The lampshade shows normal signs of use: small paint chips, some light scratches, and some small dents at the top of the lampshade. The frame has a hole at the bottom. Dit is the result of an attempt by the previous owner to rewire the lamp 'the easy way' by creating a hole in the frame. In the meantime, the wiring has been renewed and put back through the Z frame, as it originally was. The lamp has an E27 fitting/fitting. Top mirror bulb included.

Netherlands, 1950s
