This sophisticated fluorescent light fixture is the larger brother of the Ox, and originates from the late DDR era. The lamp was designed around the1970s, and its simple, modernist design reminds of the Bauhaus school. The two-part aluminium housing is completely aligned with the glass tubes, and combined with a black bakelite connection box.

ORIGIN
The lamp was found in one of the main buildings on the premises of one of the oldest breweries in Berlin. Before the brewery went bankrupt as a result of the German reunification in the early 1990s, it brew one of the city’s top beers for over a hundred years. The Giant Ox illuminated one of the storage areas in the complex.

RESTORATION
All our lights are restored by hand with the greatest care. As unique piece of heritage, we seek to preserve the light’s authentic appearance. We present the lamp in it’s original finish, or re-finish the light in it’s original color. The lamp has been completely rewired to current standards, and fully assembled and tested to European Legislation, We hope that it may be preserved for many centuries to come.
