TC6, Aldo van den Nieuwelaar, Artimeta 1968

Before it went into production, the TC6 was presented as a "light object" in Galerie Swart. The gallery represented important members of the abstract geometric art movement like Francois Morellet who was a source of inspiration for van den Nieuwelaar. Only later, when lighting company Artimeta took it into production, the TC6 was to be called a "lamp". Artimeta produced only 148 pieces. So what is it? A lamp, or a piece of art? Does it matter? Just look at it: The relative dimensions are perfect and could not have been any different. The size of the square is determined by the standard size of a circular bulb. As Francois Morellet put it: "My motto is not to make any choices". This is a beautiful, rare ....... in a very good condition.

We have several new round bulbs on stock. If you want to have one or two spare ones. Each bulb will last for many years.

We are proud to have provided the Museum of Fine Arts Houston with a TC6 by van den Nieuwelaar for their fantastic collection. Now this is your chance to get one yourself.
