Wim Rietveld’s famous Panama lamp, patented as the Giso 4050, makes an ideal wall lamp for the dining table. The three hinges in its slender arm allow the lamp to be adjusted into countless positions. The cable neatly follows the three-fold lines of steel, leading towards the switch plate with a special key, lacquered in bright red, to tighten the hinges. The lamp is lovingly called ‘Panama’ thanks to its likeness to the iconic Ecuadorian straw hat with a broad brim. The diffuser of fiber glass is often missing or severely cracked by the heat of the light bulb, but has been replaced by a more sustainable polyester replica.
