50th Anniversary Hexagonal Table Lamp
In the early 70's, Wabbes already acquired the marble from De Merbes Sprimont. This is the reason why we wanted to use that stone again, in 2019, to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of General Decoration, and most of all to tell a Belgian story.
Production is limited to 50 pieces.
When Jules Wabbes was an antiques dealer, he transformed antique Chinese celadon vases into lamps. The early model of the hexagonal lamp was produced in ceramic. This is how he developed the light bulb fixing system and worked out the shades the lamp creates. He asked his pottery artist friend Antoine de Vincke for a lamp stand in terra cotta. Jules Wabbes also designed the same lamp in travertine stone, and finally developed the raw and the polished bronze models in 1969.
