A very rare and published floor lamp designed in 1987 by Pentagon member Gerd Arens. The lamp is made of a concrete base and a steel frame with a neon light on it. Towards the top the frame and the neon tubes form a square with a globe inside. Inside the globe you can see the movement of the neon. They do not touch each other, but strongly interact. The “Pentagon” group was founded in 1985 and consists of Wolfgang Laubersheimer, Gerd Arens, Ralph Sommer, Reinhard Müller and Meyer Voggenreiter. The intention of these young German designers was to create independent projects which radically change the traditional concept of living. They were very successful at the exhibition “Documenta 8” at Kassel.
