About the design
Type 6436 is a large Brutalist style hanging lamp by Svend Aage Holm Sørensen for Holm Sorensen in the 1960s.
it is comprised of eight leaf shaped brass sheets, each leaf is flame treated in the signature process of Holm Sørensen’s designs, which brings out a wondrous specter of metallic colors, and carries the iconic Holm Sørensen serrated edges. The eight leaves are fixed to each other at the top by a brass band and form a flower-like shape, which is echoed in a smaller version on top.
When lit, the light escape through the narrow space between the leaves and provides a soft emitted light sideways, while the flower-like shape ensures a direct flow of light through the open bottom. Some upward directed light is provided by the open top.
