About the design
The Nord-lys, or Northern Light in English, by Sven Middelboe for Nordisk Solar Compagni in the 1960s.
It is cast in full colored ABS-plastic with an organic shape. The cylindrical top is open toward the top, leaving way for upward directed light, whilst the lower cylindrical part guides the emitted light downwards. The rounded shade, which connects the two cylindrical pieces, gives way for light to be emitted upwards onto the top cylinder and downwards onto the lower cylinder.
When lit, the colored outer becomes even more saturated, and gives off a pleasant soft illumination, perfect for a Mid-century dining table or a Scandinavian Modern kitchen table. It could also be a charming light in the bedroom.
It was produced in a number of colors.
