Large artichoke shaped brass lamp by Svend Aage Holm Sørensen for Holm Sørensen in the 1960s, in very good vintage condition
TYPE 6435 – large artichoke shaped brass pendant from the 1960s by Svend Aage Holm Sorensen. Collectors item in very good vintage condition – rare internationally sought after piece!
A large pendant with a width of 16.9″ (43 cm) and a height of 13″ (33 cm), comprised of five tiers of flake shape serrated brass plates – acid treated and flame cut in Holm Sørensen’s special process (this is his signature), bringing out a wondrous specter of colors.
Shapes and acid-treatment come together to create the illusion of a suspended lighting artichoke, and as the bulb mount is placed in the center of the lamp, the lights emits through the flakes, 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 leafs. The bottom is open to allow direct light to flow downward.
The pendant comes with the original brass chain to support the weight of the light and the original brass canopy, complete with label sticker. The hanging height is 55.9″/142 cm, measured from the ceiling to the bottom of the light.
A gorgeous and sculptural 1960s pendant, perfect over a dinning table providing an authentic mid-century feel in the room or over a sitting area. Perhaps in the hallway welcoming your guests – 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), all measuring about 1 m (3′ 3.4″). Fitted with safety clamps for easy connection to existing wiring.
