About the design
The Type 5196 is designed by Svend Aage Holm Sorensen and produced by Holm Sørensen & Co. in the 1960s.
This wall lamp is comprised of six square shaped serrated brass plates, that are carefully arranged in a decorative pattern of squares. The plates are flame treated in Holm Sorensen’s special process (this is his signature), which brings out a wondrous specter of colors. On the back they are numbered 1-6 to ensure each plate is placed on the right spot.
The bulb mount is placed on the wall mounting, which is mounted to the wall by a single screw or hook. The 6 square-shaped plates are then placed on the wall mounting (on the matching numbers), leaving the bulb in the center of the lamp, which gives way for a softly diffused warm light reflected to the wall, upwards and downwards.
This specific wall light is not seen on the market very often – and in that sense it is a rare light.
