Van de ontwerper Curt Fischer (1890 ? 1956) wordt aangenomen dat hij de eerste designer was van verstelbare verlichting. Tevens is hij de oprichter van het bedrijf Midgard.
His first designs date from 1919, so even before the mythical Lampe GRAS luminaires from France.
The first Midgard units appear at the machines of Ronneberger & Fischer and in its factories in Auma (Thuringe, Germany). The first lamps were really commercialized in 1922. The lamps were then marketed under the name Midgard. His designs such as the scissor lamp, for example, set the tone for a series of high-quality, robust and aesthetically beautiful work lamps that came into their own in rough factory buildings as well as in an office or. Thanks to many different mounting systems, the lamps could be used on metalworking machines, in sewing workshops, at architects' drawing tables and in offices. While the base of the model remained the same, an adapted base could be chosen, depending on the working environment.
The lamps were very successful and were even used in the workshops of the prestigious Bauhaus school . The director at the time (1923-1925), Walter Gropius was a big fan of this model (source: 1000 Lights)
