Specifications

Bohemian style hanging lamp by Temde, Switzerland 1960s

XXL hanging Bohemian lamp. Model 887 with 5 lamps cascading down between 2 meter long strings. Beaded with wooden beads in natural color and dark stained small wooden beads. The bulbs are not included. Made by Swiss company Temde leuchten in the 1960s. Temde-Leuchten and Temde AG was a German-Swiss manufacturer of lighting fixtures, headquartered in Detmold (North Rhine-Westphalia) and subsidiary in Sevelen, in the canton of St. Gallen in Switzerland. Fritz Müller (1889-1964), son of a furniture maker from Lipperland founded the company in 1911 under the name Temde, abbreviated by Theodor Müller, father of the company founder. In the first years, only wooden lamps were produced. In addition to residential lighting, Temde also produced special products for public facilities and commercial establishments, such as hotels, restaurants, public places and churches. Since the 1930s, Temde AG has also been producing lighting elements made of modern materials such as chrome and glass, but wood remained the main material. In the post-war period, the production of wood-based materials became the basis for new lighting concepts. The use of pressed wood made it possible to build entirely new collections. Although Fritz Müller expanded the operational infrastructure and his company offered 250 basic models in the mid-1950’s, Temde did not profit so much from the general economic boom of the 1950s. In the 1970s, the metal, glass and plastic materials became more and more important. Temde filed for bankruptcy in 1986. The Swiss part, Temde AG was deleted from Switzerland’s commercial register in 2000. Some designers that worked for the company are: Charles Keller, Max Rutz, Wilhelm Vest, H. Zehnder, Eva Renée Nele and many others. Temde-Leuchten received 31 iF Design Awards.
