The Seagram table lamp receives the name of the first attempt at skyscraper construction by the acclaimed German-American architect Mies van der Rohe. Located in New York City, the Seagram building was completed in 1958 and gathers the principles of modernism along with the functionalist aesthetic.
This unique lighting piece is a block of marble involved by vertical brass blades carefully inserted as an allusion to modern metal structures and follows Mies beliefs that a building’s structure should be visible as an external expression with no decorative elements.
