This highly expressive light fixture is the shorter version of the ‘Giant Lobster’, and is considered a very rare piece. This explosion proof lamp comprises two parallel thick glass tubes connecting the solid cast-aluminium cylinders. The original reflection plate and protection cage have been removed to emphasize its extraordinary appearance.

ORIGIN
Just like its larger brother, this lamp was salvaged from one of the largest laboratories in East Germany. After WWII this lab was part of the soviet military administration, and became one of the DDR’s state-owned companies until the reunification in the early nineties. It was hanging in a storage space, most likely used for storing inflammable chemicals.

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.
