As Seen in Interior Design August 2013
Taken to task.
The Bernie Table Lamp (one of many styles found in the Bernie family) upholds the design philosophies of the Bauhaus movement, holding tightly onto the underlying mantra of “form follows function.” On the function end, Bernie features ball-and-joint adjustability, a 320-degree swiveling reflector and a dimmer on the fixture’s brass base. But the form isn’t lacking either—the simple composition makes it ideal for the minimalist home, and four available finishes make it versatile enough for a variety of aesthetics. Sophisticated style paired with strong German engineering makes the Bernie collection one of the most enduring designs in the Holtkoetter line.
As its motto suggests, Holtkoetter is truly the BMW of modern lighting. Every contemporary lighting fixture they make is engineered in-house down to the smallest detail to make sure the all-important function of "Licht machen" (making light) comes to vibrant fruition. The ultimate result is a beautiful final form. You can clearly see the evidence of the Bauhaus influence in the perfectly proportioned lines, precious materials, efficient light and user-friendly controls of each Holtkoetter Lighting task and ambient lighting fixture.
