This decorative & sculptural lamp, attributed to Maison Jansen, is a playful 70`s take on the Japanese Ikebana. Well suited for this minimal form, the heat treated brass patina has been worked to a high quality by a skilled craftsman. This sculptural piece would be perfect on a console, sideboard, side tables, to create a decorative focal point where the form could be appreciated. The unique combination of Modernism & Naturalism, together with the use of luxury materials, make this lamp a fun addition to a range of interiors such as Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern, Hollywood Regency, 70`s Glamour, Traditional or Contemporary. The attention grabbing 3 brass flowers are made up of 3 layers of petals each, some of which are raised to add depth. Each flower sits on its own gold lacquered metal stem, gracefully stepped in height. Inside each flower there is lamp holder with a removable fluted solid brass cover suggesting the stamen of the flower. The square base works as a plynth and is topped with a dark brown acrylic cover with a high polish finish. There is a band of polished chrome wrapping around the base. Underneath there is felt padding for protection.To gain access into the base there are 4 screws finished with brass decorative gilt domed nuts.
