Mid-century Danish Double Spotlight Floor Lamp by Hans Schmidt – Fully Restored
Hans Schmidt primarily designed ceiling shades back in the 1970s so this is a find. A versatile floor lamp in chrome with matt chocolate brown, double spotlights, each with independent integral switches, this lighting is as practical as it is good-looking. Those elongated, narrow-bodied spotlights can be height-adjusted, rotated and angled to get the glow just right. The label tells us this is a Model 2009 piece but we cannot find another so possibly a rarity. Set behind a chair for reading, by the bedside, over a desk, next to your sideboard, to illuminate wall art, it will work anywhere where a burst of soft light is needed.
This original, vintage floor lamp is ‘sold as seen’. It is in good – very good, used condition and has been fully restored with care and expertise. The lamps have been rewired along with energy efficient bulbs and a new plug added, and it has PAT tested to meet modern regulations. The spotlights can be rotated and angled, and they can be height-adjusted on the main stem by unscrewing / tightening the arms. As you can see from our photos, the painted metalwork on the spotlights does carry tarnishes, small dents and chips, as does the weighted base. This is as you might expect with a vintage piece but overall these are minor and we don’t feel detract greatly from the appeal of the piece. Indeed, they are part of its history and charm. Do browse our photos to get an accurate sense of their condition though. It comes from Denmark, imported directly, and the maker’s label can be found inside one of the spotlights.
