Curt Fischer's historically important invention was the Steering Lamp. It can be assumed that Curt Fischer was the first to construct an articulated light with E27 bulb sockets. For many, he is hence known as the father of tractable light. With his invention, he made a name for himself and his company Midgard and attracted the attention of Walter Gropius and others because of his ideas in the light business. The Midgard lights were used as hard-wearing and highly flexible lights, not only at the Bauhaus but also on ships, in industry and in the private sector.
The Midgard Typ 113, which was frequently used in Bauhaus, will be produced again up from 2018 with original production methods, built just with handmanufactured parts, using materials like enamel, bakelite, nickel and porcelain.
