The Kenner Girder and Panel Lamp

The Original Kenner Girder and Panel Lamp Lamp

Kenner Girder and Panel lamps offer a soft light that is easy on the eyes. They are based on the classic building toy from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. When the kits were first produced, girder and panel construction was the height of modernity, and orange and blue were the colors of the future, as anyone who attended the 1964 World's Fair in New York City remembers. By the 1980s, glass panels were being replaced by the post-modernists who were fond of what was then considered "retro", stone veneer, marble, brick and  slate.

This lamp was designed for the uppermost shelf and casts its light about the room. There is a dimmer, usually resting on one of the lower shelves making it easy to get the right amount of soft light for the room.

If you would like one of these lamps for your own home, drop us a line. We also have produced a small number of kinetic K'Nex lamps which you can see here. We can make one up for you, or we can send you a kit and let you build your own.
