ABOUT THE DESIGNER:
◼︎◼︎◼︎◼︎◼︎◼︎◼︎◼︎◼︎◼︎◼︎◼︎◼︎
Dutch modernist industrial designer Herman Theodoor Jan Anthoin (H. Th. J. A.) Busquet was born in Holland in 1914, he passed away in 1977. Even though his legacy remains strong through the minimalist lighting designs available on the vintage market. Most likely drawing inspiration from the De Stijl and Bauhaus movements, Busquets designs are radically simplified and have a coherent relationship between form and function. Like Gerrit Rietveld, his work often incorporates a primary color palette, with adjustable and directional features, often with a playful quality. His Pinocchio Lamp (1954)—which features sleek, articulated legs that form a tripod base, paired with painted metal shades in a choice of red, blue, yellow, green, white, or black—is the best known example this signature approach. Busquet’s other iconic designs include the 144 Desk Lamp (1932), 122 Lamp (1940s), and the innovative, adjustable Sun Series Pendants (1955).


ABOUT THE MAKER:
◼︎◼︎◼︎◼︎◼︎◼︎◼︎◼︎◼︎◼︎◼︎
The Dutch lighting manufacturer Hala, based in Zeist, was one of the first lighting manufacturers in the Netherlands. After the Second World War, Hala’s simple and affordable designs were praised by the Goed Wonen Foundation, which aimed to address postwar material shortages and improve the quality of daily life through well-designed products for the home. During the 1950s and ‘60s, Hala became a symbol for the economy of modernism.

Most likely drawing inspiration from the De Stijl and Bauhaus movements, Busquets designs were reductionist in style, forming a coherent relationship between form and function. Like Gerrit Rietveld, his work often incorporates a primary color palette, with adjustable and directional features, often with a playful quality. During his time at Hala, he designed icons such as the 144 Desk Lamp (1932); 122 Lamp (1940s); the Pinocchio Lamp (1954)—which features sleek legs that form a tripod base, paired with painted metal shades in a choice of red, blue, yellow, green, white, or black; and the innovative, adjustable Sun Series Pendants (1955).
