About the design
Type 6395 – large leaf-shaped brass pendant from the 1960s by Svend Aage Holm Sorensen.
A large pendant with a width of 16.5″ (42 cm) and a height of 11.2″ (28,5 cm), made up twelve leaf shaped serrated brass plates – acid treated in Holm Sorensen’s special process (this is his signature), bringing out a wondrous specter of colors.
Shapes and acid-treatment come together to create the illusion of a suspended lighting flower, and as the bulb mount is placed in the center of the lamp, the lights emits through the leafs, creating a softly diffused illumination. As the warm ambient luminance is projected onto the surroundings, it is ever so gently interrupted by a pattern of lighter spots, escaping between the leafs. The bottom is open to allow direct light to flow downward.
The pendant were produced with brass chain, to support the weight of the light, and the brass canopy, where label sticker would be.
