About the design

The Gefion Sconce is a crystal glass with brass wall light produced by LYFA in cooperation with Swedish glass-works, Orrefors in the 1960s.

This beautiful sconce is comprised of a thick clear crystal glass shade, curved to form a half circle, held in place and attached to a thin brass wall mounting by two small brass screws. The thick crystal shade features an embossed pattern, reminiscent of nature’s ice crystals on a golden surface on a cold Scandinavian winter day.

The frosted embossed crystal glass shade oozes mid-century Scandinavian glass design with a clear reference to nature in line with contemporary Scandinavian glass designers, like Alvar Aalto and Carl Fagerlund – this light is often credited Carl Fagerlund, but there is no documentation to support this.

As this light lit, the richly textured thick crystal shade create a soft illumination, resembling glowing ice crystals hanging on the wall. Label on the bulb mount.
