Products from Tecnolumen
Walter Schnepel in Bremen founded the Tecnolumen brand in 1980. Despite its relatively short history, the company has long established itself among the design world with its Bauhaus style lamps, door handles, small pieces of furniture and accessories. Particularly famous today is the Wagenfeld Table Lamp, which was the first lamp designed by Tecnolumen in
Since its inception, the Tecnolumen collection has focused on lighting in the Bauhaus style and other design lamps ranging from classic pendant lamps such as the HL99 Pendant Lamp to elegant wall lamps in an Art Deco style. In addition, the label has expanded its range over the years to include door handles and other design products, including tableware, cutlery, teapots as well as watches and accessories. Tecnolumen designs have been influenced or created by a wide range of designers including Bauhaus designers like Wilhelm Wagenfeld, Marianne Brandt and Gyula Pap and more contemporary designers like Dieter Rams, Ninus Tatari Yoash, Vincenz Warnke, P. Schnorrenberger and many others.
Part of the Tecnolumen collection is based on classical designs, such as the HL99 Pendant Lamp, which was modelled after an old lamp shape from around 1900. The Trabant 1 Pendant Lamp (adjustable) represents an exciting and eye-catching series from the Tecnolumen collection, which is available in several versions.
As the first Tecnolumen design lamp, the Wagenfeld Table Lamp is still the undisputed highlight of the Tecnolumen Collection. The original design by Wilhelm Wagenfeld dates back to 1924 and from 1980 onwards, the lamp was offered as part of the first Wagenfeld range by Tecnolumen and has since been extended with further re-editions. The Wagenfeld Table Lamp is still regarded as a classic example of timeless Bauhaus design and the typical style of Wilhelm Wagenfeld, whose creations have inspired countless designers in the past. The Wagenfeld Table Lamp is equipped with various features that distinguish the authentic creation from counterfeit ones. Thus, the original lamp is not chrome-plated, but nickel-plated, which results in a yellowish patina with age. In addition, the opal glass lampshade of Wagenfeld Table Lamp is carefully hand-blown. Tecnolumen is currently the world’s leading manufacturer of products designed during the Bauhaus era and is distinguished by products of the highest quality.
