This is one of the true icons of the 20th century Czech design, the table lamp 0513 by famous lighting designer Josef Hurka. This lamp is often nicknamed the “Nun” for its similarity to the shape of a nun’s hat. The nickel shade has got wonderful organic curves, is adjustable and works perfectly well to funnel the light. In contrast, the steel base is a simple block with sharp angles.
