Yellow plastic pendant by K Kewo in the 1960s for Nordisk Solar Compagni – sunny yellow Danish space age hanging lamp
The MINISOL was designed in the 1960s by K Kewo (not Sven Middelboe, as many vintage shops mistakenly think) for Danish lamp producer Nordisk Solar Compagni. Produced in a wide range of retro colors in robust ABS plastic.
In the 60’s plastic was “the new black”, and designers conceived new designs and colors based on the versatile properties of the new material. The MINISOL is an excellent example of this! It is similar in style and size to Verner Panton’s Flowerpot, from the same era, and it is a charming lamp that could fit in almost anywhere in the modern home, alone or in pairs. Cast in full colored hard ABS plastic it is a seriously attractive piece. The shiny surface reflecting the contours of the surrounding room, saturated by the color of the pendant.
Up for sale here is a beautiful sunny yellow MINISOL.
