Question

This rare double tube fixture was mainly used to illuminate industrial buildings in East Germany. It originates from the beginning of the DDR era, and is one of the oldest fluorescent fixtures in our collection. As a close relative of the ‘Gazelle’ and the ‘Moose’, it expresses  an elegant and sophisticated design. It comprises a cast-aluminium housing with a aluminium connection box, combined with a horizontal bar holding the two glass tubes.

The lamp was salvaged from one of the oldest breweries in Berlin. For over a hundred years it was the source of one of the city’s top beers. Unfortunately, like many state-owned companies, the brewery went bankrupt as a result of the German reunification in the early 1990s. This particular lamp was hanging in the main building of the brewery.

The Red Deer item 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.
