All types of the ‘Opala’ lamps are now available in two sizes. The shade is manufactured in impact resistent opal high gloss acrylic, the top in wet painted aluminium in two colour variations – black and white. The stand is made in high gloss chrome and the base in wet painted solid steel, also in white and black.
