Off-white plastic hanging light by Lars Schioler for Danish Hoyrup Light in 1960, in very good vintage condition
PEARLSHADE, white lamp by Lars Schioler for Danish Hoyrup Light in 1960 – charming off-white plastic hanging light in very good vintage condition.
This beauty is comprised of a pleated off-white plastic shade with a bulgy middle and white plastic rim at the top and bottom. The shade is fixed to an inner plastic tube, separating the shade from the bulb to avoid heating damage to the shade.
When lit, the off-white plastic creates a soft diffused light, and the open top and bottom gives way for upward and downward directed light, making it ideal for hanging over a smaller to medium sized dining table or kitchen table. It could also be a beautiful addition in the bedroom or living room.
The PEARLSHADE is often credited as being a design by Holm Sørensen, but it is in fact designed by Lars Schioler in 1960 and was introduced in the first catalogue by Hoyrup Light in 1960 – Schioler and Hoyrup Light even got a patent for the pleated PEARLSHADE in 1961. It was produced in number of sizes and colors.
All original, but rewired with 2 m (6′ 7″) high end quality, white fabric cord – for safety and beauty. Tested and fully functional. Cleaned, labeled and packed in protective plastic cover.
