These wall lamps were acquired in a shop in Antwerp, Belgium, in 1969. They are made in the style of the designs by Yki Nummi for Sanka Oy and made for Stockmann-Orno in the 1950s and 1960s.
All the electric parts were made by the VLM Components company from Buccinasco, near Milan in Italy. They were produced in the 1960s and early 1970s. Today VLM Components is owned By Relco. Together they are one of the biggest suppliers of switches, cords and plugs in Europe. VLM Components became famous because of the switches they produced that were designed by Achille Castiglione in 1968.
