Counterpoise "one-Boom" halogen lamp by Clive Entwistle. A rare and radical mid-1960s design by a utopian British architect (and New York City resident) whose work primarily consisted of renderings of unrealizable visionary projects. Composed of a fiberglass rod with a chrome counterweight, a hand-cut Lucite base, and a tweeter-like diffuser with guide wires. According to Best Bets, "there's no pulling and tugging to adjust them; their fiberglass Boom moves at a finger's flick." Retailed briefly through Bloomingdales and selected for the U.S. embassy being built in Osaka for the 1970 World's Fair. Rewired, features original dimmer knob. Measurements approximate and will vary with position.
