3 Retro Heat Lamps Philips Infraphil KL7500 - By Charlotte Perriand - Space Age Style - Cast Aluminum - The Netherlands - 1960-1969
These designer Space Age retro heat lamps were designed for the Dutch quality brand Philips by the French architect and designer Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999) in the 1960s.
Her work focused on creating functional living spaces in the belief that better design helps create a better society. She was inspired by Le Corbusier's books, as she thought his writings criticizing the decorative arts were consistent with the way she herself designed.
The company Royal Philips Electronics registered the brand name Infraphil in September 1945. Infraphil is a combination of INFRAred and PHILips. From 1946, Philips released several dozen infrared lamps worldwide for soothing heating devices.
This Infraphil KL7500 is the basic design for the heat lamps in the later 1960s and 1970s. Made of cast aluminum, these heat lamps were the first to use the combination of pressed glass with an integrated Fresnel lens. The lamp is attached with a clamping ring that fits into a groove on the front of the luminaire. The Philips trademark is integrated into the grip, a foil with the Philips logo is stuck on top of the luminaire. Can be used as a wall lamp, hanging lamp or as a table lamp.
The three lamps still work perfectly and were and are intended for medical use, such as against muscle pains, colds, sprains, bruises, and the like. 1 of both lamps is still in the original packaging, which is still quite rare to find.
Design and relaxation in 1!
