Electricity: 1 bulb E27, 1 x 60 watt maximum, 110/220 volt.
Any type of light bulb can be used, not a specific one preferred. For this setup a big globe opaque light bulb was used.

Period: 1980s, 1990s.

Designer: To be appraised.

Manufacturer: To be appraised.

Other versions: This gauze pendant lamp was probably made in several colours and sizes.

No labels or whatsoever on this pendant lamp. Very strange for a lamp with a socket that was first produced in the late 1980’s. These type of plastic sockets were still in production in the 2000’s. Maybe it is a lamp by IKEA, but a search in old catalogues of the company did not gave any result. Kartell from Italy is a famous plastic furniture and lamp producer, but no Kartell lamp is known like this. Massive from Belgium is also a possibility.
