Fischer Leuchten

Fischer Leuchten was founded in 1951 by Aloys Fischer in Sundern, in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. In 1953 Johannes Schulte joined the company as a full partner. In 1972 the enterprise moved to another building in the same town. In 1993 Johannes Schulte junior and in 1995 Alois Fischer junior joined the company. Today the firm is located in Arnsberg, some 15 km (9 miles) from Sundern.

This desk lamp reminds of the colours used by artists like the Dutch Piet Mondriaan and Gerrit Rietveld

Fisher Leuchten also produced this lamp for other brands, such as IKEA and Massive from Belgium.
