Walter Von Nessen

Best known for his Modernist Art Deco lighting designs, Walter von Nessen immigrated from Germany to America in 1923 and subsequently opened his New York design studio. Enamored with that many ways in which materials could be manipulated to maximize illumination, Walter von Nessen pieces exist in both standard materials like brass and other, more experimental ones like Bakelite, spun aluminum, and rosewood. Showcasing an efficiency reminiscent of Eileen Gray, Nessen pieces are simplistic, yet captivate thanks to unexpected pops of wit.
