It wasn't so easy to find one. A couple of years later 2 lamps showed up for sale at an auction 350 km away. An insanity car ride by myself took place, Malte (our Borderterrier) joined but my husband was in Taiwan working. We had two lamps of different models with us back, not in the best condition though. So, husband started to dismantle the lamps for a cord change a month later when he returned. One million pieces, all over, I tell you.
And just about then the thought came to us - wouldn't a new lamp like this be just perfect? In love with the lamp and the fact that one of Sweden's most notable inventors had designed it.
Husband was working as an engineer and took the summer and fall off from his employment to draw the updated version of the lamp and at the same time identified and negotiated with the holders of the copyright to the lamp.
The first parts were manufactured, arrived, and agian - millions of pieces all over!
About one year later, early fall 2010, the negotiations were finalized and the first complete lamp prototypes were assembled. BIG progress!
Winter came early. We painted the prototypes white, had a small photo shoot at home for the website, and I knitted warm clothes for the Triplex.This, my friends, was part one of the resume, more to follow this weekend. I wish you a really good one!
