Question

This discrete, yet sophisticated lamp should be considered the pendant brother of the True Oyster. Its pure and timeless design was strongly influenced by the Bauhaus-movement. These lamps were produced by various East German manufacturers since the 1920s, and were often used in the basements or military barracks. The base includes a porcelain E27 socket, and the hand-blown glass dome creates an very special lighting effect.

These fixtures originate from a small military complex north of the German capital Berlin. Together with several other ‘Mussel types’, they were hanging from the ceilings in the barracks of the complex, that were the soldiers accommodations.

The Mussel comes with:
– Halogen bulb E27 42 watt
– 1.5 meter of black twisted textile cable
– suspension set (optional)
– 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.
