How can you not appreciate the graceful simple lines of Gerald Thurston's mid century modern lamps?
As the leading designer at Lightolier during the postwar building (and design) boom, Thurston created his iconic directional floor, table and desk lamps to suit the fast-paced lifestyle of 1950s and 1960s America. Designing lamps that did more than just sit pretty, Thurston was at the forefront of the mid century modern lighting revolution - his lamps pivoted, rotated and swiveled to provide the broadest range of light.
No wonder Lightolier insured his right hand for $1 million!
Gerald Thurston's iconic designs are just as elegant and ingenious today as they were in the modern era, speaking to our ever-growing desire for simple, multi-functional objects.
TOM GIBBS STUDIO is excited to offer a special collection of Gerald Thurston Lamps for the modern and contemporary home.
