About the design
The Orrefors Gefion Crystal Light or P 385 is produced by LYFA in collaboration with Swedish glass-works, Orrefors in the 1960s and most likely designed by Carl Fagerlund, but there is no documentation to support this.
It is comprised of two thick crystal halves, double corrugated and curved to form a cylinder, stabilized and attached to each other by four brass screws and the bulb socket inside. On top of the bulb socket lies a thin brass plate, and a long brass stem ending in a brass canopy towards the ceiling.
When lit, the richly textured thick amber crystal shades creates a soft ambiance, resembling a glowing ice crystal hanging from the ceiling, while it scatters light in every direction. The open bottom gives way for a wide downward directed light.
The pendant was produced in clear crystal or amber crystal from Orrefors Glassworks. The embossed pattern used on the crystal shade is called Gefion and also used for wall lights, named Orrefors Gefion Crystal Sconces.
