Pendant lamps are the classic models among lamps - they are especially fancied in entrance areas, in high hallways and guest rooms. They are not only a light source but also a furniture and are perceived as a particularly room characterising design element.
SISTRAH is short for "she shines bright" - in German: "sie strahlt hell".
This lamp with it's factual and clear design is a well known classic from the Bauhaus. It was developed in 1931 by the designer C.F. Otto in collaboration with the Photometric Institute of the Technical University of Karlsruhe. The purpose of the lamp was to illuminate the room and at the same time be used as a glarefree work lamp. With it's unique combination of direct and diffuse light, the lamp quickly made it's way into offices, medical practices, restaurants and education institutions. For many years now it is a collector's item in design-concious living rooms.
The SISTRAH is not a replica but still an original: It is produced in the same manufacturing site in Swabia since the 30's.
The lamp SISTRAH consists of 5 pieces of hand blown glass. These 5 pieces are made up of a combination of crystal glass and opal flashed glass.
The lamp distributes a bright, completely glarefree light that is scattered nicely and without hard shadows. The light is composed of direct and diffuse light: firstly the light of the bulb gets reflected by the use of the opal flashed glass and secondly it gets to the work plane through the clear multi-layer glass. The glass rings made of opal flashed glass prevent glare and complement the light that is directed downwards with a softer diffuse light. Scattered light disperses in the upper lampshade and contributes to brightening the ceiling.
The glasses are connected with a clamping ring. Thereby dust deposit inside the lamp is almost impossible.
The socket is furnished with a long thread. Thus the bulb can get adjusted individually inside of the lamp's body and the light effect can be changed accordingly.
The lamp is available in 4 different lengths: 77, 92, 107 or 122 cm (incl glass). Please indicate on your order if you do not want to receive the standard lamp with a length of 122 cm.
This lamp has a delivery time of approx. 10 days.
