Classic designs by Schiephacke and Ssymmank

The Fifties

produced by many classic icons of design. These include the standard lamps "Ssymmank" and "Schliephacke", timeless modern pieces that can be named in one breath with the famous works of Arne Jacobsen, Eero Saarinen or Charles and Ray Eames: the organic lamp by Scharoun's assistant Guenter Ssymmank - a sensation even for the fifties with its lamp head made out of six brightly-coloures sheets of nylon - can now be found in te collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York. The mutifunctional "Schliephacke" by architect Fridjof Schliephacke is completely different: its reduced formal language obviously adopts the Bauhaus tradition of design.

Before the background of contemporayry design and architecture, this book tells the story of two lamps whose contrary approaches to design exemplify the post-war dabate on functionalism Germany - lamps that have lost mone of their fascination, even today.
