Floor Lamp EGYPTIAN EYE | EE 86

Günter Leuchtmann, 1986

EE 86 is basically a light sculpture. Its peculiarity is instantly noticeable due to its lanceolate design and the material used – either black or white marble. From above, the 27-cm-high and 24-cm-wide lamp looks like an eye with a circular lens enthroned in the centre. The designer Günter Leuchtmann based this design from 1986 on the paintings and hieroglyphs of Egyptian civilization several thousand years ago. In ancient Egypt, the “eastern eye” was a pictorial expression for the sun disk of the sun gods, for example from Re and Aton. It was considered a symbol that could ward off all harm.

The integrated cord dimmer lets you set the mood and experiment with different light intensities.

Floor lamp available in three versions: marble black matt, marble black polished or marble white polished.

Each lamp carries the TECNOLUMEN signet.

Günter Leuchtmann

Günter Leuchtmann has created a wide range of marble, travertine and ceramic lamps. His most famous lamp was designed in 1981 for a restaurant in Hamburg known as “Le Tre Streghe” (The Three Witches); he named his design after the restaurant. The designer, who boasts a rather fitting surname (“light man”), has processed high-quality and often weighty materials, such as solid balls made of fine Murano glass, to create elegant and extravagant lighting fixtures.
