Vintage from the 1970s




Dutch design pendant 'Kompas' by B. Lodder for Raak. It resembles a ships compass in many ways. Groundbreaking dutch design of the 1970's, making the light emitting section of this light seem to free-float in space. The circular dual cone shaped aluminum and plexiglass light element can be rotated inside the suspension frame which itself can both rotate and be adjusted in a vertical direction. The height is adjustable from 100 – 210 cm.

Founded in 1954 by Carel O. Lockhorn, Raak is recognized as one of the most important Dutch lighting manufacturers of the 20th century. Before launching his business in Amsterdam, Lockhorn had worked for lighting giant Philips in Eindhoven (where he later opened a second Raak outlet). Raak's tagline was “Illuminated Architecture”—Lichtarchitectuur in Dutch—which emphasized the brand's commitment to producing designs that integrate harmoniously with sophisticated, high concept interiors. Raak’s glass and metal , floor lamps, pendants, and wall lights achieved an aesthetic that was both elegant and futuristic through high quality materials with innovative forms.
Raak regularly collaborated with international designers and architects, including E. J. (Evert Jelle) Jelles, Sergio Asti, Bertrand Balas, and Nanny Still.
One of the most significant lighting firms of the postwar period and a key contributor to the "Space Age" style of the 1960s and '70s, Raak lamps are highly sought after by collectors and vintage enthusiasts around the world.
