One of the most prolific design visionarists of the last century was an american designer Norman Bel Geddes (1893 - 1958). His aerodynamic and monumental visions of the cities, airplanes or cars of the future are the icons of the design history in USA and are the most famous part of the air-stream design movement of the 1930s and 1940s. Geddes created many designs, which presented his ideal vision of the future based on aerodynamic especially. But his drawings overtook their time and became the idealist and utopians pictures of tomorrow.

So Geddes materialized his style also into the ordinary products, which could be produce more simply. One of the examples is this nice aerodynamic table lamp made of patinated brass, which he designed for Faries manufacturing company in the 1930s.
