Sven Aage Holm Sørensen lamp


I was browsing the other day the archive of City-furniture.be and I saw this amazing diamond shaped wall lamp. The information on the site describes it as a "Rare large Wall lamp Designed by Simon Henningsen for Lyfa, Denmark. 1960's". But doing a little research I discovered that the lamp was in fact produced by Holm Sørensen & Co, the company founded by Sven Aage Holm Sørensen to produce his own designs.

There is blog about vintage danish lights where you can find tons of information, the vintage danishlights blog. Read the Tivoli post for all the details about this mix-up.

There is also a raw metal version of this lamp (the diamonds are formed from cut sheet steel which has been faux-patinated to have the appearance of torch cut brass or copper) as well as a smaller one with three parts instead of five. You can see them at 1stdibs and flickr.
