Mid-century modern lighting was the source of inspiration for the Shell Reading Lamp. Mid-century modern is a term that describes mid–20th century developments in interior, product, graphic design, and architecture, from roughly 1933 to 1965. Cara Greenberg was the first author to formally use the term to describe the style that is now recognized by scholars and museums worldwide as a significant design movement. The enduring popularity of the mid-century modern style is based on many factors. It gave us clean lines, gentle organic curves, and a love for different materials. This style grew in America based on earlier styles such as Bauhaus which began in Germany. Bauhaus was a craft guild, founded in 1919, which was open to all types of artists, including painters, sculptors, and architects. Designers during this period created pieces that emphasized utility and clean lines. The pieces were devoid of ornamental details and emphasized function. The Shell Reading Lamp is offered in a variety of finishes and accents. Custom sizing is available. Designed by Shah Gilani, ASFD.
