This is one of the lamps that Loos favoured for furnishing apartments and villas, employing slight variations according to context. Our version is of the type that he designed in 1907 as a desk light for the study of the Paul Khuner apartment. In 1912, he used a further slight variation for the Gustav and Marie Turnovsky apartment.
