How do I recognise an original Wagenfeld lamp?
Each lamp is numbered consecutively and carries the Bauhaus and Tecnolumen logo.
The Wagenfeld or Bauhaus lamps, as they are also known, are currently produced in four different designs: all of which share the dome-shaped lamp head made of opal lined glass, and which produces the typical diffuse and comfortable light for which all versions of the Tecnolumen table lamp are known. Presenting a form that is as characteristic as it is unique, in addition to the WG 24 Tecnolumen also produce the WA 24 which in contrast to the glass base of the WG 24 features a metal base, the WA 23 SW with a black painted base and the WG 25 GL with a glass base. The peculiarity of the Wagenfeld Lamp WG 24 is in its construction. The base is, as with the WG 25 GL made of glass, but with the WG 24 so is the supporting leg made of transparent glass: a feature which gives it a light, transparent look. The visible cable meanwhile underscores the industrial character of the light. According to Wilhelm Wagenfeld, the works of Bauhaus should be industrial products and also look like such. However, the WG 24 was manufactured by hand. The unmistakable design enjoys today great popularity worldwide and is therefore often copied and forged. As your guarantee of authenticity every Tecnolumen Wagenfeld lamp is consecutively numbered, and is embossed with the Bauhaus logo on the bottom of each lamp.
Wilhelm Wagenfeld was born in 1900 in Bremen as the first of three children and discovered quite early his creative passion and technical understanding. After training as an industrial draughtsman he produced his first graphic works, works which reflect his growing enthusiasm for the literature and art of Expressionism. At the age of 24, he arrived at the Bauhaus in Weimar, where he trained as a silversmith under the direction of László Moholy-Nagy. In this period arose, in addition to the now famous Bauhaus lamp, also various metal objects, works always created with the aim to industrial manufacture. According to Wagenfeld that which should distinguish and define Bauhaus works is that they should be serially producible and possess an unmissable industrial charm. Through his successful work in various manufacturing companies Wilhelm Wagenfeld quickly gained important experience, experience which in later years served as the basis of several patented processes for mass production he developed. In the 1950s Wilhelm Wagenfeld established his workshop from where he designed commissioned works for renowned clients such as WMF, Braun or Rosenthal. He always remaining true to his principle of combining contemporary functionality with timeless design. In addition Wagenfeld held numerous professorships, including positions at the State Art School and the Academy of Fine Arts in Berlin. As popular today as ever the works of Wilhelm Wagenfeld's have been presented in numerous exhibitions, are held in all important museums' permanent collections and have received numerous international awards.
