With the ingenuity of a German immigrant, Walter von Nessen, has had far-reaching effects on contemporary lamp design. It goes back to 1927 when he set up Nessen Studios in New York’s Murray Hill section to design and fabricate architectural lighting. He quickly attracted a following among the leading architects of that time who commissioned him to design lighting and other household objects for their clients, making him one of the first industrial designers and a member of a new movement whose inner circle was to include such well-known names as Walter Dorwin Teague, Donald Deskey, Gilbert Rhode and Russell Wright.
