Light by designer



Designer name: Gispen, Wilhelm Hendrik
  1890 - 1981
Willem Hendrik Gispen (1890-1981) was a Dutch industrial designer and architect, best known for his Modernist steel tube office furniture and lighting designs. He was a founding member of the Opbouw architectural movement in Holland. Gispen\'s Rotterdam factory produced serial production lamps and furniture, which were widely distributed throughout Europe. His aesthetic was well marketed and his advertisements brought forth some of Holland\'s earliest typographers and photographers onto the international Modernist stage. Gispen\'s designs are noted for their contributions to the burgeoning international Functionalist style epitomized by the Bauhaus school.
