Question

Similar to the ‘Ox’, this fluorescent light fixture originates from the late DDR era. The design and materials indicate that the lamp originate from the 1970s. The stretched aluminium housing with bakelite connection box and a long glass tube, give this lamp a light and slender character.

The lamp was found in one of the largest laboratories in East Germany. After WWII this lab fell under the soviet military administration, and became one of the DDR’s state-owned companies until the reunification in the early nineties. In a group, the lamp illuminated one of the storage buildings of the complex.

The Giraffe comes with:
– TLD 58 Watt fluorescent light (warm white, cool white, or daylight)
– 1,5 meter matt black cable
– passport 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.
