The Drop Dolphin is a distinctive East German lighting fixture expressing a pure, simple, and straightforward design. It features a metal body with plexiglass which protects the fluorescent tubes and can be opened by using the clips on the side. The fixture was produced by Leuchtenbau Leipzig (LBL), an East German manufacturer that worked closely together with the Bauhaus University in Dessau.

The fixture originates from a former spinning mill in East Germany. Together with many other fixtures the lamp was found at one of the many production lines. The textile factory had been operational for over 80 years under many different names, and ceased activity after the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989.
