Aluminium lacquered in Havana brown. Excellent condition.

 

The French architect Bertrand Balas designed the Springfontein (also known as Fountain) for Raak in the early 70s. Raak manufactured two sizes: one has a diameter of 18cm and the other 35cm. This pendant is the larger version. Its delicate silhouette suits well above a bar or reception desk, but can also brighten up your living and dining room in an elegant way. The lamp is ideally installed on a high ceiling. Light swirls up into the fountain neck and is highly concentrated downwards at the same time. A built-in reflector ensures high light output.

Raak was an Amsterdam lamp factory, founded in 1954 by Carel O. Lockhorn, who used to work for the lighting division of Philips. Raak also had a branch in Eindhoven. The caption on its labels said Light Architecture, which pointed out that their lamps need to be seen as extensive and supporting elements of architecture and interior design. The company manufactured many lights for public and government buildings as well as for home use. A large and international group of architects, industrial designers, electrical engineers and decorators contributed to the refined minimalist aesthetic of Raak’s light objects (E.J. Jelles, Maija Liisa Komulainen, Frank Ligtelijn, Nanny Still, Nico Kooy, Sergio Asti, e.a.). Frank Ligtelijn's Globe 2000 (also called Raak 2000), a floor lamp manufactured in 1961, really set the tone for the company's characteristic style: a sophisticated design, durable and beautifully finished materials and a name that excites the imagination.
