The conception of Untitled (Light Fixture) came about as a result of a visit by Calder and his wife Luisa to the home of his good friends Léonie and Geddes Parsons in Roxbury, Connecticut. Calder complained that the light above the kitchen table was much too dim, exclaiming "you need a goddamn lamp. I'll make you one"! Shortly thereafter, Calder created and installed the functional sculpture, which provided optimal lighting for the Geddes's for about fifteen years until it was passed on to their son John who kept it in use until the present date.
