“Vice Versa” Floor Lamp

“Vice Versa” Floor Lamp


Carl Aubock Vice Versa floor lamps for Wiener Werkstatte, Austria, c1960. Created from polished brass, a cast iron base and topped with a fabric lampshade. The inverted conical base and shade balance really nicely and create a minimal aesthetic.

The fourth-generation Viennese workshop of Carl Auböck combines traditional craftsmanship with a modern aesthetic. The enduring nature of Auböck designs like this floor lamp can be attributed to “simplicity and high quality—no fashionable tricks,” says Carl Auböck IV, who now oversees the workshop with his sister, Maria. “Such artefacts develop a soul over time, a certain patina.”
