The architect Maurice Grothausen is the spiritual father of this light sculpture. A lamp not intended in the first place to give light, but a lamp as ‘illuminated object’ in the interior. A lamp that shows the hand of the architect, the interest of the sculptor and the eye of the graphic artist.

The Dutch company “RAAK Amsterdam” was founded in 1954 by C.O. Lockhorn, a previous employee of Philips Lighting Eindhoven. RAAK, which means “to hit” in Dutch, implies design which precisely “hits the nail on the head”. RAAK Lighting is best known for their organic modern design of the 1970’s which combined glass & metals for a sophisticated futuristic style.
