Metal desk lamp designed by Josef Hůrka for the Napako company. The caressing name “The Nun” refers to the lampshade resembling the headgear of the said head. At least those from Czechoslovakia. Nothing is more fun than personalizing your design. And this one is very successful. The minimalism of the lamp and the line of the lampshade are impressive. It looks like a folded piece of paper, extended at the end and rolled in at the end. What is more simple? Something else would be found, but it also hit the spot.
In addition, the shade is removed and put on with one hand movement. It is attached to a rail similar to the one used by cameras to attach an external flash.
The lamp is in good natural condition. Here and there abrasions of the black paint, the chrome arm is preserved in a very good condition, all metal elements have retained their original shape, do not have any dents, deformations, etc.
The diffuser is adjustable in a vertical line (up / down), to a small extent, but sufficient. The lamp, in my opinion, is a concept one, and that’s what everyone forgives. She is supposed to look, although the Nun undoubtedly fulfills her daily tasks 100%. Shines. One light point shines on a large E27 bulb.
