Watt lamps, Henk Stallinga 1993

The style of the nineties may not be as clear to describe yet. In the late eighties the market was overflowing with postmodern designs. Random triangles, vivid colours etc. The subtleness of pioneers like Memphis Milano was often hard to find. One of the strongest contra-statements came from deigner Henk Stallinga. The Watt lamp is probably the most minimal lamp ever designed. The socket, the wire and the plug aren't hidden elements; they are the very essence of the lamp. If "Less is more" than this is the least and the most.

The Watt can be found in the collection of the Moma. It is no longer in production. This lamp consist of four Watt lamps combined with the original extention chord. It is an old version with ungrounded plugs. The wires are not as sturdy as before, but together they stay up. The extention chord can be fixed on a table, wall, or ceiling.
