Modernist Pendant L40 Designed in 1922 by Gerrit Rietveld


The L40 pendant was designed by Gerrit Rietveld in 1922. It was part of the greater design Rietveld made for the consultation room of progressive doctor Arie Marinus Hartog in the town of Maarssen.

The design served as the inspiration for the early work of Bauhaus architect Marcel Breuer before focusing on his world-famous tubular frame furniture, which in turn was closely related to the work of Mart Stam.

The design was simple and innovative, making use of the tube lighting technology that was new at the time.

This particular pendant comes from the estate of Ger Dekker, painter and teacher at the Rietveld Art Academy in Amsterdam.
