Question

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.

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.

The Unicorn comes with:
– 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.
