The lamp is a typical representative of the national romantic style that developed during the first decade of the 20th century. Although the lamp was originally launched by Karlskrona Lampfabrik in the 1910s, the "Strindberg" name has been atributed to the lamp only in the later 1950s, when Björn-Orvar Skantze visited the Nordic Museum's Strindberg exhibition and saw that August Strindberg's work table was illuminated by just such a desk lamp.
