9 500 kr Sale price

Birger Dahl (1916-1998) floor lamp by Sønnico. Material: Polished brass and dark red enamel. Produced in 1955.  Height about 135 cm. With gooseneck. Adjustable height. 

Award-winning designer Birger Dahl was a pioneer of Scandinavian lighting. He forged his signature streamlined style and launched a new vision of lighting design. Dahl’s career had actually begun the previous decade, when he became head of design at Norwegian electronics firm Sønnico. What was so special with Birger Dahls designs was strict geometric shapes, such as circles, cones and cylinders which he softened with gentle contours. He emphasised the purity of form, highlighting the shape of the object rather than hiding it behind decorative details or layers of ornamentation.

"A scandinavian midcentury modern lamp you will be able to enjoy your whole life!"
