One of the technologies to emerge from the Second World War was a thermoplastic known as Lucite. These days we know it by the more common name of Plexiglas or perspex, hardly a glamorous sounding name for this type of lamp stand material, but there are a lot of creative ways in which it was used.
As a design material it gave lamp manufacturers yet another option to experiment with and use in all manner of creative ways. The result is a range of Lucite table lamps that are individual and modern looking.
Lucite table lamps came about in the modern era as designers continued to seek ways to incorporate that space age look into their design. Nothing spoke more modern than a lamp stand that was made out of the aesthetically pleasing Lucite.
There are all sorts of lucite table lamps that make an immediate impact the moment you set eyes on them. You never quite know what you will get when you put one in your retro themed room.

At the time, lamps made out of lucite were the latest in modern creative design and they are all generally fresh and appealing looking lamps. Because it was a new material there were a lot of innovative ways in which it was used. This meant that lucite table lamps were a very diverse group of lamps with no real typical looking lamp.

Some lucite table lamps are extremely modern looking, even the ones that were designed in the early 1960s have that modern appearance. Others are a little more specialized and give you the distinct impression that they were made in the seventies to be enjoyed in the seventies.
