About the design

The Orrefors Triton Crystal Light produced by LYFA in collaboration with Swedish glass-works, Orrefors in the 1960s and most likely designed by Carl Fagerlund, who is famous, and celebrated, for his amazing crystal lights – but there is no documentation to support this.

It is comprised of a thick double corrugated crystal glass bowl with a thin lacquered plate on top and a brass stem with brass canopy. The brass stem acts as the center, as it holds six bulb sockets, while also piercing and securing both the crystal glass bowl and the thin plate. To ensure a warmth in the ambiance, the thin plate is brass lacquered on the side facing the bulbs, while the side facing the ceiling is lacquered white.

When lit, the thick double corrugated crystal shade scatters the light in every direction, while the brass lacquered plate gives warmth and softness in the ambiance. It also ensures that most of the light is guided sideways and downwards.
