Egg - floor lamp, opal glass (matt, gloss), steel, comaxite lacquer (red, black) or gloss nickel/chrome A modernist has taken a slightly unconventional approach to a replica of a Brussels-style floor lamp. The lamp was probably manufactured by Napako. This lamp was made at a time when designers were struggling with various constraints and lack of raw materials, as were all Czechoslovak manufacturers of the time. Fortunately, they had a strong tendency towards minimalist form and admired Czech functionalism. Although they were happy to build on existing types of lighting fixtures from the 1930s, they also reflected the new style trends of the 1950s, which demanded rounded, organic shapes. In the early 1960s they were influenced by the playful Brussels style. The designs were structurally simple. Interior luminaires combined with plastic and glass well reflected the fashionable movement away from organic rounded shapes towards a more playful geometric expression. Metal stand structures made of thin round profiles were mainly produced in black, white or red. Later designs were characterised by expressive austerity and purity of line. The "Egg" luminaire is part of an above-average collection of luminaires from the 1960s. It is easy to imagine it in contemporary interior design.
