About the design
PÅFUGLEN (The Peacock in English) is a wall lamp designed by Bent Karlby in 1974 and produced by LYFA.
A circular wall lamp comprised of seven layered lacquered metal circles, fitted on a shallow white lacquered metal wall mounting. The layered metal circles are colored in seven different colors, spanning from bright red to dark purple, decreasing in size towards the top dark purple circle. The white wall mounting acts as the last white circle, thus making it part of the design rather than be hidden behind the shade.
Originally advertised as a light relief, and it truly embodies this when lit, as the emitted light breaks through the space between the seven layers of circles, making them radiate soft warm light around it – an exceptional vintage collectible addition to any space!
