The Green Elk was produced by the East German lighting manufacturer VEB Leuchtenbau Leipzig (LBL), that worked closely with the Bauhaus University in Dessau, and strongly influenced their designs. The rare pendant fixture is constructed of a heavy-glassed tube, and two steel rods connecting the solid cast-aluminum end-pieces.

The Green Elk was found in a former brewery on the outskirts of Chemnitz in former East Germany. As it has been hanging in a humid basement for several decades, its paint is beautifully corroded and also the glass tube shows some ‘signs of wear’.

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.

The Green Elk can be supplied with either fluorescent or LED tubes in different color temperatures (type of warmth), and in a variety of dimming options. Standard the light comes with 3.0m long cable, 2.0m suspension wires, and black canopy. Other lengths for cable and suspension wires possible on request, please specify in comments at check out. The Green Elk will be accompanied by its passport, documenting the history and origin of the lamp.
110 volt options, US & Canada wiring, and other specialties are available.
