This modernist floor Cobra lamp was produced by the Swedish Fagerhult manufacture during the 70s. The lamp is made of beige plastic with black details. It has a flexible arm that allows the light beam to be directed anywhere. The Cobra lamp won the iF Design Award in 1975.
Founded by Bertil Svensson in 1945, Fagerhult was originally a small company in a small community in the province of Västergötland. Svensson wanted to improve the lives of ordinary people. Back then, many handicrafts – such as knitting, sewing, and wood craftsmanship – were done in the home, and good lighting was crucial to success. With the development of society and technology, Fagerhult began to produce lighting for public spaces. Today the company has evolved into a group employing 4,200 people in 28 countries. The company works closely with scientists from leading universities and is constantly pushing the boundaries of what lighting can achieve. While much has changed over the years, one thing remains the same for Fagerhult employees – the belief that better light leads to a better life.
This lamp is in original vintage condition. It has small scratches due to age. The light switch is located on the shade. The lamp requires an E27 bulb with a maximum power of 75 W.
