Table lamp by Anders Pehrson for Atelje Lyktan

Designed at the start of the 1970s by Anders Pehrson for Atelje Lytkan of Åhus in Sweden, a white version of this robust and high-quality table lamp was delivered to the Olympic Village in Munich by the thousand for the 1972 Olympics. Originally entitled Olympia in recognition of this accolade, the lamp was later renamed Simris at the request of the IOC.

The rich egg-yolk yellow paintwork of this vintage example has some chipping to the base and the cantilevered S-shaped stem, which can be seen in the images below, but the lamp head itself is in excellent, glossy condition. The lamp's heavy base gives it great stability despite its asymmetrical weight loading, and the head can be rotated through 360 degrees on the horizontal plane and tilted through 90 degrees on the vertical plane, offering considerable versatility in use. There would originally have been a light-diffusing plastic grille clipped to the rim of the head, but this is no longer present. Overall the lamp stands 38.5cm (15.25 inches) tall when the head is parallel to the base, and 55cm (21.75 inches) tall when it is tilted back (upwards) to the full 90 degrees, while its base has a footprint of 17cm (6.5 inches) diameter. It takes two small Edison screw bulbs max 40w each, and is fitted with a standard European-style two-pin plug.
