Yellow and aluminum lamp by Bent Karlby in 1970, and produced by LYFA. Very attractive pendant light in good vintage condition
PANTRE, pendant by Bent Karlby in 1970 and produced by LYFA. Absolutely gorgeous Scandinavian Modern yellow and aluminum hanging lamp in good vintage condition.
The name PANTRE refers to the three (TRE in Danish) polished aluminum “PAN flute” pipes, carefully arranged back-to-back, forming a circular shape. Each pipe has a matte yellow inner, a light bulb in the center of the pipe and a rounded aluminum cover, covering the light bulb. The rounded covers are adjustable, up and downwards, allowing for control of light flow, and at the same time giving you the freedom to alter the lights appearance, almost infinitely.
When this beautiful PANTRE pendant is lit, the yellow inner becomes even more yellow and gives off a soft ambient illumination – and the open top and bottom, provides for good luminance in the up- and downwards directions. When idle it is a true scriptural piece of art – hanging from the ceiling. Endless uses in the stylish modern home!
In the late 1960s Bent Karlby created a series of Pan-themed lights, originally produced by LYFA and in the early 1970s for ASK Belysning. The Pan-themes series included the Pan-Opticon wall sconces (1968-1969), the Pandean wall sconces (1970), the Pan pendants (Plexiglas, 1971) – and this truely magnificent PANTRE pendant.
A beautiful vintage addition to any space.
