The Looshaus building by Architect Adolf Loos in Vienna marked a turning point in Architecture by its rejection of historicism and the evolution towards Modernism. The radical aesthetic of Loos essay ‘Ornament and Crime’ (1908) implemented on the marble facade of the Looshaus building ground floor columns triggered a reflection about the purism of materials and forms.
The Looshaus wall lamp is austere both in its massive blocks of carved Carrara marble as in the choice of the brass columns that allow the transparency of an illuminated gallery in its interior. It is visually pure and minimal in its hidden functionality. No ornaments are needed to strength its singularity.
This luxury lighting piece is the perfect choice for any hotel or luxury project. This high-end wall lamp offers a unique light environment. One of the most beautiful contemporary sconces on the market.
