Orange Plexiglas lamp by Bent Karlby for ASK Belysning in 1971. Charming bright orange and white hanging lamp in excellent vintage condition
ERGO, orange Plexiglas pendant light by Bent Karlby for ASK Belysning in 1971 – Danish Plexiglas ceiling light in excellent vintage condition.
A Danish space-age lamp, cast in Plexiglas with a bright orange outer shade and white inner shade. The outer shade is hemispherical and conceal the upper half of the inner shade. When lit, the orange shade turns almost glowing orange in the color, while the inner shade turns bright white. Together they create a soft ambient light upwards and sideways, whereas the downward directed light is more bright in the ambiance.
Charming beauty with numerous applications for the Scandinavian Modern home – over a kitchen table to create a soft illumination, in the living room over the dinning table or perhaps in the hallway.
Bent Karlby and ASK Belysning collaborated for a brief period in 1970 and 1971, as Karlby designed a lighting series in Plexiglas. Among these are the ERGO, the FAKTA and the PAN (in new material and new colors).
This ERGO I have for sale is the orange version.
