Klaus Slama designed several lamps for Doria: The Doria mushroom table lamp is one of them.
Richard Essig – Often said that he designed lamps for Doria, but it was a wholesale company who bought among other things old stocks. Essig sold lamps made by Staff, Disderot, Massive and several other companies, labeled with Richard Essig – Besigheim. You never find a lamp attributed to Essig with a Doria label.
