Table Lamp by Paul McCobb - Fritz Hansen
The Planner™ series of relaunched designs from the 1950s by the late American designer Paul McCobb gains a new member this season: the Planner™ PM-02 table lamp.
Casting a warm, ambient glow, Fritz Hansen’s newest addition to the Planner™ family is a simple and small lamp that makes a big impact.
Proving that simple can be beautiful, the thoughtful, practical design emits diffused light from its hand-blown frosted glass shade to create a warm, atmospheric glow. Minimal in its expression, the lamp sits on a three-legged base in reflective brass or matte powder-coated steel to provide an elegant contrast to the tall, cylindrical shade.
Ideal for rooms where space is at a premium – or simply to update a room with the soothing ambience of indirect lighting – the Planner™ PM-02table lamp’s subdued silhouette and compact design beautifully illuminate any setting; from desk corners and bedside tables to hallways and counter tops, In both private or professional spaces. In stores from August 2019.
Paul McCobb’s (1917-1969) innate understanding of perspective paved the way for a career as one of the most important design figures of his time. The self-taught American designer’s pragmatic yet perfectionist nature was reflected in his work, characterised by slender, graphic lines, a simplicity of form and lightness of design. His trademark scale and perspective imbued his no-nonsense designs, which focus on simplicity and functionality, pared-back to their purest forms.
