Did you know?

Dutch modernist industrial designer Herman Theodoor Jan Anthoin (H. Th. J. A.) Busquet was born in Holland in 1914. Even though his legacy remains strong through the minimalist lighting designs available on the vintage market, little verifiable information about Busquet’s life and career survives—save for a few brief and conflicting biographies.

Around 1932, Busquet became the design director of the Dutch lighting.

The Dutch lighting manufacturer Hala, based in Zeist, has a clouded history, and it’s unclear whether the company was founded as an importer of German light bulbs in 1909, or if it was started under the Dutch modernist industrial designer Herman Theodoor Jan Anthoin (H. Th. J. A.) Busquet’s direction in the 1930s. Although little verifiable information about the company survives—save for a few brief and conflicting biographies—the minimalist lighting produced by Hala in the 1930s throughout the 1950s are popular on the vintage market today.
