Vintage Danish modern art lamp with psychedelic aurora effect, 1980s
Offered for sale individually (the price shown is for one lamp but we have two available), these spectacular and ultra-rare Danish modern wall lights are artworks as much as they are lighting fixtures – though they are excellent light fittings too, creating effective and 100% glare-free illumination. Measuring 27 cm in diameter and with a projection from the wall of 13 cm (16 cm including the bulb), they have a compelling sculptural quality when unlit, the strong metal layers offering an interesting combination of structure, texture and colour. Then when the bulb is lit, the lamp throws an extraordinary psychedelic aurora of patterning in light and shade some considerable distance across the wall and onto any adjacent objects. We bought the fixtures in Denmark some 10–15 years ago and believe them to be a 1980s Design Light A/S production, although they no longer have their labels. Both lamps are in excellent condition with no damage. They come with their original inline on/off switch and European two-pin plug and take a standard E27 Edison screw crown mirror bulb max 60w (included with the lamp).
