Jumo Bakelite jointed lamp black
This lamp is a modern-day take on a classic model, originally designed in France in 1945 by the Société Nouvelle des Etablissements JUMO. The name JUMO is a portmanteau of the founders' surnames, Yves JUjeau and Pierre and Andre MOunique.
The Jumo lamp is absolutely perfect for desk and living-room lighting. Thanks to the versatility of the three-jointed lamp, the lampshade can be set in any position up to a height of 41 cm. The position of the lampshade is also fully adjustable thanks to its joints. The arms and joints are made from brass and guarantee many years of quality lighting. The lamp is assembled by hand and consists of 70 separate parts.
With its high-quality materials, such as the Bakelite housing and brass joints, the robust JUMO lamp weighs in at 1.3 kg. The only change over the original design is for reasons of functionality: the addition of a push-button switch on the base. Now, the lamp does not have to be completely folded down before it can be turned off.
