The Green Beetle was originally designed and produced by Paul Mrosek between 1948 and 1972. He was regarded a pioneer in manufacturing fluorescent lights that include wooden components. The housing of the fixture consist of a typical deep green colour ‘shell’ and half-circle side parts, that are made out of beech wood. Both the sides and the metal shell display the fact that this lamp is over 40 years old. The wooden parts have been treated with linseed oil to give them back their beautiful natural appearance.

ORIGIN
These fixtures originate from a former East German factory that was specialized in Christmas decorations. The factory was operational until the late 1980s, and produced all sort of glass Christmas tree baubles.

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.
