Vintage Flexarm Art Speciality Co. Chicago Desk Fluorescent Task Lamp
We have available an absolutely beautiful, aluminium, 1950s Vintage Flexarm Art Speciality Co. Chicago Desk Fluorescent Task Lamp. It was made by the Art Speciality Co, which was established in 1932 and based in Chicago, USA. This type of lamp was used extensively in offices and government establishments; think Mad Men and 1950s U.S Police departments!
- Approx. Maximum Height: 46cm (when flex arm is straight and measuring base to top of the head)
- Length of lamp head:- 46.4cm
- Lamp Head depth: 9cm
- Base Width: 13.6cm
- Base Depth: 17.2cm
It’s in very good condition. The goose necked hood can be adjusted to optimise the light positioning. The base is aluminium and the head is made from steel. If you look underneath the base, you can see that the lamp was originally brown in colour and has now been stripped back to bare metal. I have taken a number of images in different lighting conditions so that you get an idea of what the lamp looks like in a lit room and daylight natural light.
A great looking vintage industrial light for your home, office, workplace or for bench craft work. Wonderful iconic design; really special!
It is just waiting for you to add your own plug adapter (if outside the UK). This wonderful looking vintage U.S lamp would complement any home décor but especially MCM (Mid Century Modern). A real statement piece, and it makes a great accent lamp!
Fitted with one new standard LED 110 to 240v tube, and rewired with an Earth and very dapper 3-core silver braided flex. In addition, the lamp has been lightly polished in conjunction with other remedial work. Accompanied by a Portable Appliance Testing (PAT), electrical safety and reliable operation should be ensured for many more years.
