Kazuhide Takahama was born in Japan in 1930 and after completing his studies in Architecture in Tokyo he started working in Kazuo Fuioka’s studio. In 1957, he went to Italy to visit the Triennale in Milan where he met Dino Gavina. He developed his own well-defined style in a climate of profuse cultural exchanges. The furniture and lighting he designed often features clean lines and formal restraint.
The Nefer 3 table lamp has a lovely poetic quality to it. The base of the lamp is made from a polished white marble. The base supports four metal columns in which a white fabric shade is draped over the top housing a bulb within. The fabric shade diffuses the light nicely which can be turned on and off via a metal spherical pull switch or a push switch. The lamp is in good condition for its age with minor traces of past use. Rewired and PAT tested for use in the UK. Can be rewired to comply with other national standards on request.
