This early 1930’s task lamp was designed by Kurt Versen. It has a polished nickel finish with black chrome accents. The design references to Bauhaus lighting are very evident in this lamp most likely designed before Kurt Versen came to the US in 1930. Examples of this lamp have been found with both European wiring elements and UL wiring. This is a beautiful, clean and original example.
Kurt Versen was born in Sweeden and studied in Germany at the Polytech School. An avid modernist, he participated in 4 of the major US Expositions of the 1930’s and the1937 Paris Expo. He continued to participate in Good Design exhibits through the 1940’s and 1950’s, winning several citations along the way.
