Functional and aesthetic, bakelite is the ideal material for electrical engineering.
Developed at the beginning of the 20th century by the Belgian chemist Leo Baekeland - from whom the term derives its name - bakelite is known for its heat-resistant properties, as well as its stability and high electrical insulation. Until the 1960s, bakelite participated in the elaboration and development of many technical innovations - such as the telephone and radio. For financial reasons, however, bakelite was gradually replaced by thermoplastic, which was less dense but also of a less comparable quality.
Today, in order to offer a quality alternative to thermoplastics, some factories located on the European continent are relaunching the production of bakelite, using traditional moulds and tools.
You have a choice between different glass shades, all of which are made by qualified glass makers in a European craft factory.
It may therefore present bubbles and parting lines caused by the manufacturing process. These are not defects, but the guarantee of a real craftsmanship.
The pendant lamp is sold with a textile cable of 3 meter.
Bulb not included.
This lamp is fixed to the ceiling with a metal bracket. The screws that serve to attach the bracket to the lamp are included.
The screws used to attach the bracket to the ceiling/wall are not included because the type of screw depends on the material of the wall or ceiling (concrete, brick, plasterboard, wood).
