Due to its characteristic looks, this lamp was known as a ‘Turtle lamp’. A wide range of these lamps were produced by the East German manufacturer Elektroinstallation Oberweimar (EOW), and used in a large variety of industries. Its typically industrial design comprises an cast-aluminium body with a spring-mounted ceramic E27 socket, fitted with a splash-proof glass cover. The Sea Turtle is distinguished by its clicked-on protective case, and the mounting brackets by which it can be installed easily to wall or ceiling.

The lamp was salvaged from a large military complex. As a ‘row’ of Sea Turtles, the lamps were mounted in one of the main barracks on the terrain. After the reunification of Germany in the early nineties this complex lost its significance, and was abandoned soon after.

The Sea Turtle comes with:
– two mounting brackets
– 42 watt E27 halogen bulb
– 1,5 meter matt black cable
– passport describing the history and origin of the lamp.

An orange variant, and a variant with an orange cage are available on request.

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.
