A hand crafted wall sconce that comes from a villa in the east of the Netherlands designed in the 70s following the principles of the Bossche School. A movement in dutch Architecture particularly known for its sobriety, the founder Dom van der Laan once said that they were trying to build a house for the mind. Using the so called ‘plastic number’ as a rule in trying to obtain the perfect proportion for the human body inside a building where it was no necessary to trying to relate to its surroundings and could be totally at ease. Anyone that has been to a house built following these principles will have to admit that this is truly the case.

The villa was designed by Wim de Jong who remains quite a mysterious character, not much is know about him except that he followed the rules of the Plastic Number in very great detail according to his own insight.

The lamp remains in original condition an was part of a set of twelve, the other eleven remain in the villa making this specimen a true rarity.

Upon request we can send some photos of the interior of the house where the lamps can be seen.
