Quiet sphere: DSL 23 floor lamp by Tecnolumen.
When switched on, the opal glass sphere becomes a luminous sphere, which provides a wonderfully diffuse light. The design is classic on the one hand and extravagant on the other. Higher, lower: the DSL 23 luminaire can be adjusted to the desired height. A screw on the frame makes it possible. Each luminaire is numbered consecutively and bears the Tecnolumen/R. Döcker mark.
Not everyone is familiar with the name Richard Döcker. Richard Döcker was born in Weilheim an der Teck in 1864. After studying architecture, he became a member of the Deutscher Werkbund and the Berliner Ring. He worked as a site manager in the Werkbund housing estate at Weissenhof and was responsible for the realisation of two houses (House 21 and 22). Döcker died in Stuttgart in 1968. The design of the Bauhaus floor lamp DSL 23 dates back to 1923/1926.
