A small "Chinese" lamp designed by a Czech designer Helena Frantová in 1953. The lamp has a simple, modernist yet sophisticated design. The body of the lamp is made of metal with patined brass finish, the round lamp shade with a shape reminiscent of the traditional Chinese hat is made of parchment, lined with coarse thread. Thanks to its lightweight body it can be used both as a reading lamp and hung on the wall. The body of the lamp is left in its original condition, the parchment lamp shade has been newly made according to the original design. The lamp is fitted with one E27 socket.
