Gilbert Waltrous + Heifetz

MoMA Design Competition Floor Lamp


Anyone can jump on the Mid-Century bandwagon and put a credenza in the sitting room, but true connoisseurs have a sharper eye. A prime piece for the latter is Gilbert Watrous’ MoMA Design Competition Heifetz Floor Lamp. The enduringly stylish, sleek steel fixture features a slender arm balanced on a magnetic ball, with 360-degree rotation. The shade is a bit newer than the 1951 model, in a matching burnished bronze color.
