WILHEM WAGENFELD LIGHTS
Wilhelm Wagenfeld was born on 15th April 1900 in Bremen, Germany, becoming known as one of the most important German industrial designers of the 20th Century, and founding members of Bauhaus. Wagenfeld believed that everyday household objects should be "cheap enough for the worker and good enough for the rich." Wilhelm Wagenfeld's iconic ME1 table light created between 1923 and 24 was designed in conjunction with Carl Jakob Jucker at the Weimar Bauhaus. The iconic light set the school's new functionalist agenda, which focused specifically on the new development of standardised goods for industrial mass-production. With the construction of an opalescent domed shade, glass and metal cylindrical stem and circular glass base, this innovative light clearly shows how the application of modern design principles such as purity, simplicity and self-effacement can achieve a unique style in everyday objects. Also as a prototype for industrial production, the ME1 light reflects core principles of Bauhaus philosophy concerning art and technology.
