Description

Pair of vary rare Honeycomb wall sconces, designed in 1953 by Belgium Designer Jules Wabbes (1919-1974), Laiton, Belgium, 1960. The Honeycomb wall lamp is composed of 32 hexagonal brass tubes brazed by hand. This lamp was designed for the high entrance hall of 'the Declercq’s house' built by André Jacqmain and Jules Wabbes. To ensure it could be seen from both below and above, Wabbes designed a lamp made of hexagonal tube sections, so that the light is filtered from both sides by the metallic structure.One of the characteristics of this design is the fact that the lamp is straight at the top and sloping at the bottom. An impressive design with beautiful light quality.Each scone is executed with 2 x E27 porcelain (original) fittings. Electrics are renewed.Weight: approximate. 5 kilogram each. Lit. Jules Wabbes: Architecte d'interieur, Ferran-Wabbes pag. 29.
