Dek-A-Lux was a sub-company of Albert Dwek‘s company DWEK from Paris, France. The company also sold the model 215 and 216 lamp (Ochetta) designed by Giuseppe Ostuni in 1952 (O-Luce) in the 1950s. Dwek named them AD1 and AD2. Dek-A-Lux must be long gone. Do you know more? Please let us know through the contact form and help improve the websites exactitude.
