This highly sophisticated light is the slightly smaller cousin of the ‘Black Rhino’. These lights illustrate the thoroughness of East German engineering. They has been designed to be splash-proof, gas-proof, and was therefore suitable to use in explosion-sensitive areas. They were manufactured from the 1960s until the 1980s by Leuchtenbau Wittenberg, and often applied in places like laboratories and chemical plants. This extraordinary fixture consists of a centimeter-thick glass tube, and two aluminium ends designed for a suspended position.

The lamp was one of the several ‘Rhino’s’ that was salvaged from one of the largest laboratories in East Germany. After WWII this lab was part of the soviet military administration, and became a state-owned company until the reunification in the early nineties. On the laboratory complex it illuminated a small site.

The Javan Rhino comes with:
– two TLD 36 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.
