A Swedish classic from iconic producer Luxus in Vittsjö. Designed by the brothers Uno and Östen Kristiansson in the 1970s. An original shade of natural golden yellow silk and a diffused disk of plastic as lid and bottom for soft shine. The bulb socket is placed at the end of a turned wooden top decoration with white lacquer that also holds the shade. A minimalistic design with a clear hint at Swedish folk design. Good condition with only some very minor scratches visible at close examination. Standard E27 light bulb. Swedish lighting and furniture manufacturer Luxus was founded by Uno Kristiansson circa 1950 in the city of Vittsjö. Renaming and running his father’s production company Vittsjö Möbelfabrik AB from 1966, it is believed that Uno’s brother Östen soon merged the two companies, when it became simply Luxus. In 1968, Luxus presented a collection of lamps with brightly colored textile shades, which according to some sources were designed by renowned Finnish textile artist Marjatta Metsovaara (1927-2014). Most of Luxus’s products, however, were designed in-house by Uno and Östen. Like many of their Scandinavian contemporaries, the Kristiansson brothers favored teak but did not shy from using glass, leather, plastic, and acrylic.
