This slender fluorescent light most likely originates from the early DDR era. It is the smaller version of the Antilope. It consists of a single tube that is held together by two bakelite ends and a cast-aluminium casing. Fortunately, even after decades of abandonment in the remains of an old factory building, this Antilope has maintained its original green color.

The Baby Antilope was discovered at a German ‘Fiehfutterfabrik’, formerly a factory where cattle feed was produced. Like the ‘Giraffe’ and the ‘Gazelle’, this fixture was used at one of the numerous manufacturing companies of East Germany, but has been left to forgotten after the reunification in the early nineties, when the majority of these companies closed down.

The Baby Antilope comes with:
– a 36W fluorescent tube (2700K, 4000K, or 6500K)
– 1,6 meter of black neoprene cable (other lengths possible)
– suspension set (optional)
– DALI or 1-10V dimmable on request (optional)
– there is a slightly longer version, the Antilope
– a passport or historical sign describing the history and origin of the lamp.

The fixture has been completely rewired to current standards, and is assembled and tested to EN 60598 directive of European Harmonized Legislation. US & Canada wiring available on request.
