As a part of the rich legacy of the esteemed German lighting company, Midgard, the TYP 113 lamp is a tribute to innovation and timeless design. Conceptualized by Curt Fischer, this lamp, also known as a “Steering Lamp,” was an inventive solution to poor lighting on factory workbenches and earned a place of distinction at Walter Gropius’s renowned Bauhaus Design School in Dessau.
The TYP 113 showcased groundbreaking design, pioneering the commercial production of articulated lights in the early 20th century. Its defining features – an adjustable nickel-plated arm with a rotating porcelain knob and a flexible enamel lampshade – offer optimized lighting direction and a high degree of flexibility.
Preserving Midgard’s heritage, David Einsiedler and Joke Rasch, who took helm of the company in 2015, undertook an extensive exploration of the brand’s history. From meticulously recreating the TYP 113 using original tools and manual production techniques to reproducing the 1930s black bakelite socket with a turning switch and cord, the duo has breathed new life into Midgard’s legacy. While incorporating modern elements like a build-to-order process, e-shop system, and digitalization, Midgard’s commitment to its historical context remains undiminished. Now based in Hamburg, after relocating from its original factory in Thuringia, Midgard continues to shine a light on its rich past, casting a bright beam into the future.
