The lamp is wrapped with vegetable tanned leather from 'Tärnsjö House of Leather' in Sweden.
In the picture, the lamp is shown together with Lampshade 2388. The price is excluding lampshade.
All of Svenskt Tenn’s lamps are tested and marked with the product name (for example ”Svenskt Tenn 2552”) and CE marked according to the safety standards and regulations within the EU/EEA, except for the U.K. and Switzerland. Further markings indicating safety standards are added for each product.
Svenskt Tenn recommends using a matte LED bulb. This light source is both energy saving and will keep your lampshade in a good condition while no shadows will reflect on it. For this particular lamp, Svenskt Tenn recommends using a small LED bulb.
Table lamp 2388 was first produced in brass, which was Josef Frank’s favorite metal. Today, it is also available in nickel-plated brass with black leather. The frame is still bent by hand, just as it was in the 1930s. The lamp was designed by Josef Frank in 1936.
Josef Frank grew up in Vienna and studied architecture at Konstgewerbeschule. In the 1920s he designed housing estates and large residential blocks built around common courtyards in a Vienna with severe housing shortages. In 1925 he started the Haus & Garten interior firm together with architect colleagues Oskar Wlach and Walther Sobotka. Svenskt Tenn hired Josef Frank in 1934 and just a few years later he and Estrid Ericson made their international breakthrough. Although he was already 50 when he left the burgeoning Nazism in Vienna for Sweden, Frank is considered one of Sweden’s most important designers. Read more
Wipe Svenskt Tenn’s nickel plated lamps lightly with a fiber cloth or use silver polish. Avoid contact with water.
Sustainability and manufacturing
Nickel Plated Brass
Twenty-five to thirty-five per cent of the brass used in Svenskt Tenn’s lamps is recycled. The lamps are manufactured in Blekinge by a company that was founded in 1884 and is probably Sweden’s most prestigious company in its field. Design, product development and handcrafted production are all under one roof, just as it has always been done.
The brass is purchased from a rolling mill outside of Florence that is considered to have the best quality in Europe, and the brass scraps are recycled. They are sorted in the factory and the pure brass can be melted down into new metal. The brass with residue from soldering must be given a finishing treatment before it can become brass again.
All electrical materials for the lamps are manufactured in Italy. The lamp manufacturer works in accordance with a policy whereby all components that are purchased must be of Swedish or European origin.
