Vienna Copper Lamps have been developed by VOLDAAN DESIGN and SUPERSENSE for their unique "Palace of Analog Delicatessen" in the heart of Vienna.
It all started with the discovery of an old and very traditional "Metal Spinner" on the city limits of Vienna by Yvonne and Robin from VOLDAAN. This artisan possesses and runs a series of very old machines and proudly owns a warehouse stuffed with an amazing amount of wooden forms used for the artisanry of bending and spinning metal with incredible perfection.
We fell in love with the warm light and magical appearance of these lamps and selected 2 very special shapes, applied some modifications and used the incredibly warm material copper to create this special edition series that has been produced exclusively by our friends in Austria for AUTHENTICS UK.
The edition consists of 2 sizes and 2 finishes. One is pure and raw copper reduced to its simplest form, the other finish has been carefully coated with a black varnish on the outside for a very elegant and contemporary look.
Vienna lamps are made from pure untreated copper, after time the copper will react naturally with the atmosphere and a patina will develop that protects the copper from corrosion. The colour of the patina will vary depending upon the environment. When used in interiors the copper will gradually acquire an antique penny brown colour and its own distinct and individual appearance.
You can of course clean the lamps with specific cleaners if you prefer the copper to be shiny and brilliant !
The black lacquer version should be cleaned using a damp cloth.
