This highly sophisticated fixture 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. They were manufactured from the 1960s until the 1980s by Leuchtenbau Wittenberg, and often applied in places like laboratories and chemical plants. This extraordinary lamp comprises a one-centimeter thick glass tube and two aluminium ends which can be mounted to wall or ceiling. Altogether it weighs 22 kilograms.

ORIGIN
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 applications.
