This unusual fluorescent light fixture was manufactured by VEB Leuchtenbau Leipzig around the 1960s. Unlike its family member the ‘Gazelle’, it is distinguished by a rather robust design, and dates from the late DDR era. The lamp comprises a large cast-aluminium housing with a horizontal bar connecting bakelite ends holding the glass tube.

ORIGIN
The lamp was salvaged from one of the oldest breweries in Berlin. For over a hundred years this complex was the source of one of the city’s top beers. Unfortunately the brewery went bankrupt as a result of the German reunification in the early 1990s. In the large basement of the brewery, this lamp illuminated one of the narrow tunnels connecting the brewing areas.

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.

DETAILS
The Unicorn can be supplied with either fluorescent or LED tube in different color temperatures (type of warmth), and in a variety of dimming options. Standard the light comes with 3.0m long cable, 2.0m suspension wires, and black canopy. Other lengths for cable and suspension wires possible on request, please specify in comments at check out. The Unicorn will be accompanied by its passport, documenting the history and origin of the lamp.
110 volt options, US & Canada wiring, and other specialties are available.
