About the design
The Kastholm pendant is designed by Jørgen Kastholm and Preben Fabricius and produced for Nordisk Solar Compagni.
A gorgeous piece comprised of five ring-shaped aluminum shades, and arranged on metal spacers. The five ring-shaped shades decreases in size and is slightly curved towards the middle to ensure a glare-free light. The cylinder at the top, conceals the bulb mount and acts a the base of the metal spacers.
When this large pendant is lit, the combination of the narrow spaces between the curved shades, the purple inner coating and the open bottom and top, creates a soft and warm illumination. A true beauty alight as well as idle.
Originally designed in 1964 and produced in white lacquer, brass lacquer or aluminum lacquer with purple inner coating. They were available in three sizes; a smaller version measuring 18.7″ (47,5 cm) in width, a middle version measuring 21.7″ (55 cm) in width and a large edition measuring 27.6″ (70 cm) in width. Around 1980 the name changed to Kastholm instead of P376.
