Beautiful large Brutalist style hanging lamp by Holm Sørensen in the 1960s, in very good vintage condition
TYPE 6395 – Danish Brutalist lamp from the 1960s by Svend Aage Holm Sorensen – in very good vintage condition.
A large pendant made up twelve leaf shaped serrated brass plates – acid treated in Holm Sorensen’s special process (this is his signature), bringing out a wondrous spectre of colors. Shapes and acid-treatment come together to create the illusion of a suspended lighting flower, and as the bulb mount is placed in the center of the lamp, the light is emitted through the leaves, creating a softly diffused illumination. As the warm ambient luminance is projected onto the surroundings, it is ever so gently interrupted by a pattern of lighter spots, escaping between the leaves. The bottom is open to allow direct light to flow downward.
The original brass chain which support the weight of the lamp and the original brass canopy is included. The hanging height is 46.5″/118 cm, measured from the ceiling to the bottom of the light.
Pure Brutalist styled 1960s pendant, that would be perfect over a dinning table providing an authentic mid-century feel in the room or over a siting area – no matter where you place it – it is sure to attract positive attention and start conversations.
All original including the original wiring, brass chain and canopy (complete with label sticker), measuring about 80 cm (2′ 7.5″), to support the weight of the light, as well as the original brass canopy. Fitted with safety clamps for easy connection to existing wiring. Tested and fully functional. Cleaned, labeled and packed in protective plastic cover.
