Other versions: This “swirl” WOFI Leuchten zebra globe table lamp was made in 3 sizes. 20, 25 and 30 cm. (7.8, 9.8, 11.8”) Pendant lamps, floor lamps, table lamps in different forms, all in the same striped “zebra” design were produced.
Other companies such as the Dutch Ilu Design or “Ilu di Vetro” and EGLO Leuchten from Austria sold similar or comparable lamps. In all probability these lamps are all produced in China.
WOFI Leuchten Wortmann & Filz GmbH was founded in Sundern, Germany in 1959/60 by the Wortmann & Filz families. The name WOFi is an abbreviation of Wortmann & Filz. In 1964, their headquarters moved from Sundern to Meschede-Freienohl.
Over the years WOFI produced many lamps, as you can see with Google images, but nothing spectacular.
Since 2013, WOFI is part of the EVERLIGHT Co.LTD.
