The Terence Conran designed ‘Mac-Lamp’ was first exhibited at the 1951 ‘Festival of Britain’ and then put into production for Habitat stores through the 1950’s to 1970’s. The design remained unchanged over those years other than the original wooden arms being changed to ‘wood grained’ plastic. The shade is spun aluminium and the base is a plastic cover over cast steel.
