This highly sophisticated fixture is the kid brother of the Black Rhino, and illustrates the thoroughness of East German engineering. It has been designed to be splash-proof, gas-proof, and dust-proof, and was therefore suitable to use in explosion-sensitive areas. These lights were manufactured by Leuchtenbau Wittenberg from the 1960s until the 1980s, and often applied in places like laboratories and chemical plants. Its extraordinary design includes a one-centimeter thick glass tube, and two aluminium ends by which it can be mounted to wall or ceiling.

This fixture was one of the several ‘Rhino’s’ salvaged from one of the largest laboratories in East Germany. After WWII, this lab was part of the soviet military administration, and became a state-owned company until the reunification in the early nineties. On the laboratory complex these lamps were used in many different areas.

The Black Rhino comes with two TLD 36 Watt fluorescent tubes, a 1,5 meter matt black cable, and its passport describing the history and origin. It can be delivered with warm white, cool white, or daylight fluorescent tubes. Upon request, it can be delivered in a dimmable version.
