Vintage White Maclamp No. 8 Desk Lamp designed by Terence Conran
An iconic design and a highly sought after lamp because of its versatility and good looks in almost any situation, this is the No. 8 Maclamp designed by Terence Conran. Initially conceived as a wood and metal structure, this later model – dating from the 1960s to the 1970s – features plastic arms with integrated cable guides, a plastic covered cast base and metal shade, but the fundamental design is the same. And it just looks good.
This one is in good overall condition. There are some signs of age and use throughout and some surface losses around the rim of the shade and a small dent to it. The base was not in very good condition and has been sanded and re-sprayed with white enamel and given a gloss finish. It’s not perfect when closely inspected, but the repair has given back the lamp its good looks, as the original base was distractingly worse for wear.
The lamp is full working order and has an inline switch on the cable and a UK three-pin plug. As always, buyers are advised to perform a safety check of electrical equipment in the environment within which it is to be used.
