The Kaiser Idell 6556-F Super Floor lamp is a very flexible light. Thanks to the ball joint on the lamp base, the light rod can be tilted forward 18 degrees and backward 15 degrees. In addition, the shade has a second joint and can therefore be individually aligned. A switch is located on the supply line.
This lamp is available in black, matt black, easy grey and white. The two versions black and white have a glossy finish, the other two have a matt finish. The lamp base and the lamp rod always have the same surface as the shade. All except the grey version have chromed elements on the lamp shade. The chromed elements are made of polished and silver soldered brass. The grey version has elements made of polished, untreated brass, which acquire a natural patina over time. The shade and base are painted by hand.
The 6556-F Super Floor lamp was originally designed by Christian Dell for the company Gebr. Kaiser & Co. Leuchten KG in 1931. The design is associated to the original Bauhaus style. In 2010, the company Republic of Fritz Hansen incorporated this lamp and other lights of the Kaiser Idell brand into its range. Each light is equipped with an "ORIGINAL KAISER idell" embossing.
