Chrome & brass floor lamp by Deknudt Lighting

ROOMSCAPE
Chrome & brass floor lamp with halogen uplighter by Deknudt Lighting 1970`s ca, Belgian.
This vintage floor lamp has been gently cleaned while respecting the antique patina. It is rewired, earthed & ready to use. This lamp is compatible with other countries although it may be necessary to purchase a different light bulb suitable to local electricity.

This `Postmodern` floor lamp has a minimal Neoclassical form, the simplicity emphasising the different shapes. The form is enhanced with the combination of luxury materials: stainless steel with a champagne mirror finish & solid brass detailing. Standing like a skyscraper this lamp is well suited for a range of decors such as Art Deco, 1970`s Glamour, Minimalist, Industrial or Contemporary.

The frame has three main components: the base, column & shade.

The rectangular plinth base top surface is in stainless steel champagne mirror finish highlighted by solid brass detailing around the 4 edges and at the centre, while the sides are in satin black lacquer. From the centre of the base rises a slender metal column in a champagne mirror finish.

The column is of a square section following the materials on the base, finishing at the top with a solid brass sculptural decorative detail that works as a mechanism to move the head at different angles. Inside the column runs the wiring.

The rectangular metal shade at the top follows the same design as the plinth base and is in a champagne mirror finish, however the angles are exaggerated with great dramatic effect. This shade tilts 180 degrees forwards & backwards. The mechanism for tilting is of solid brass, functions smoothly and is very decorative. On the upper side there is a reflective metal surface and the light bulb is protected by a removable glass cover.

This lamp takes a standard tubular Halogen light bulb up to 500 Watts. At present fitted & photographed with a new Linear Energy Saving Halogen tubular clear of 230 Watts by Crompton Lamps. This type of bulb is easily available in most electrical shops & over the internet.

There is a working dimmer switch on the cord. .

This floor lamp is sound and in very good condition. The surfaces have some patina, such as minor tiny marks & rubbing to the finish in line with age & wear. There is the original maker`s label underneath the base.

Sergio Guazzelli worked as an Architect and Interior Designer in Argentina. In 1990, he moved to Rome, where he developed and diversified his talents. The 'Eternal City' ignited his interest in antiques, leading to a Diploma in Antiques & Fine Arts. As architecture embraced art; antiques found a place in his designs.

In 1993, Sergio opened his first antiques showroom in Rome, with a second seasonal shop in Ponza, an island close to Capri. The island spirit, with her international clients, influenced his eclectic style. Following features in several magazines, Sergio established his own art & antiques publication. As a part of this, Sergio regularly visited and reported on leading European Auction Houses. It was London's art & antique scene, which drew Sergio.

In 1999, Sergio opened with his partner, Blair Thorburn, their London shop, Roomscape Vintage Furniture, in the historic Horse Hospital at The Stables Market in Camden Town. It was here that they became one of the first to propose vintage Scandinavian style to the London market. Moving forward at the beginning of the Millennium, Roomscape proposed further styles such as Hollywood Regency & Modernist glam.

Roomscape’s adventurous approach brought them to the attention of decorators including a collaboration of the launch of Liberty’s Fourth-Floor Furniture Department in 2006. Decorators not only appreciated the style but also the quality of pieces. With a wide range of contacts and 25 years of experience, Sergio & Blair source stock from abroad as well as trade fairs, private clients and auctions houses. Roomscape searches for pieces in good condition and gentle restoration is done to bring the piece to the best original vintage condition. Each piece is researched with historical detail fully presented on the website.

In 2009, Roomscape moved from a ‘traditional’ shop to a larger showroom with a stronger online presence reaching global destinations. The ‘By Appointment’ Showroom allows customers, both the trade and the public, to have the full 75m² space all to themselves for as long as they want and have a coffee with the boys. Moving from a shop has allowed a more attention to buying and sourcing abroad. It has certainly helped that Sergio is fluent in five languages.

2010 was the year Roomscape worked in partnership with Mary Portas' Living & Giving shops furnishing the Notting Hill & Primrose Hill stores. This collaboration proved charity shopping can be socially responsible, exciting and stylish at the same time. ‘Socially’ responsible in other ways, Roomscape has sourced vintage pieces for the entertainment industry such as The Union Club in Soho, London. The Union is a well established private members club and one of the first to furnish their club with vintage pieces. Most notable is their collection of Sciolari Chandeliers from Roomscape.

In 2010 Roomscape launched a great selection of 20th Century Art, mostly British artists, from the likes of Terry Frost, Richard Smith, Patrick Heron, John Piper, Victor Pasmore, Patrick Proctor, Stephen Buckey, Brendan Neiland, Patrick Caulfield and many others.

Introducing a hire service in 2011, Roomscape moved fast into Fashion, supplying Fresh Film, Cutler and Gross luxury eyeware , Elle Decoration magazine, Agent Provocateur, Miss Sixty & Bulgari

Just in time for Christmas 2012 Roomscape launched a Vintage Jewellery Collection with rare American pieces from the 1940's & 1950's, such as Trifari, Coro Craft, HAR, Renoir & Matisse, Christian Lacroix and Dior.
