Call for price

Designed by Peter Nelson for the Architectural Lighting Company in 1967. Peter Nelson was the founder and designer at Architectural Lighting Company having learned his trade in the aerospace industry before starting to make lighting in 1961.  This FA2 desk light is now considered an iconic design piece of the era and you can certainly see why!

The spotlight has a hand spun polished aluminium and chrome plated tubular steel base, stem, shade and bulb holder and distinctive encased switch holder. The height and angle of the shade and bulb holder are adjustable along the length of the stem.

Dimensions: Height of upright stem: 62cm. Length of shade and bulb holder: 20.5cm. Diameter of shade: 10cm. Diameter of base: 17.5 cm.

The light is in full working order and good condition with only minor blemishes to the aluminium consistent with a used 50 year old item. The switch has been renovated with a metric replacement part because the original Imperial part had become brittle and the switch housing fixings have been re-threaded to allow the housing to be adjusted as per its original design via an Allen Key (provided).
