The counterbalance lamp of J.J.M. Hoogervorst is probably one of the most iconical dutch lighting products from the last century. Ceiling lamp No. 1506, The Upper King, is based on a design from the late 1960’s. By twisting the weight at the end, the shade of the Upper King can be moved up and down. The lamp can be turned from left to right. The shade itself can also be adjusted in any direction. Lamp comes without E27 mirrorhead bulb.
How Its Made
All ANVIA lamps are handmade in The Netherlands. We reproduce the midcentury models designed by J.J.M. Hoogervorst as close as possible and combine it with the materials and techniques of today. All shades are still hand spun which gives each ANVIA lamp its own unique character. Where necessary we have adapted the original design for e.g. improved stability, safety etc. Most of the steel components are made close to Almelo, the place where it all started in 1933. The final assembly takes place in the neighborhood of Almelo. All new ANVIA lamps can easily be used and are fully compatible with LED bulbs.
