Other versions: This Lucid Harmonie table lamp exists in some variations. Soren Eriksen designed several lamps in this style for the Lucid company.
This lamp is often named Culot, because it is labelled that way, but it is the base of the light bulbs used in the lamp, culot GD24d3. Often said that these lamps are from the 1970s or 1980s and were designed for the Hilton hotel in Barcelona, Spain. Maybe the Hilton story is true, but it is not mentioned in a catalogue.
These lamps are not time travellers. Everything about these lamps screams that they were made in the 90s.
These lamps are always labelled with a CE label. The CE label became mandatory in Europe in 1993. However, the logo exist in its present form since 1985. Not to be confused with the CE marking from China (China Export). Of course, almost the same label.
The Harmonie table lamp appeared in catalogues of Lucid from 1996 until 2002.
