Hans-Agne Jakobsson 'Balloon' Floor Lamp


Hans-Agne Jakobsson for Hans-Agne Jakobsson AB in Markaryd, floor lamp model G123, brass, metal, fabric, Sweden, 1960s

This playful 'Balloon' lamp was design by Hans-Agne Jakobsson in the 1960s. The circular lampshade catches the eye. A floral patterned fabric in pink, purple and orange is fixed above the shade which consist out of multiple horizontal parts that are visible. Therefore a certain rhythm is created and the surface of the shade is not only visually structured but also in a haptic sense. The big shade is fixated to a brass stem that ends in a cylindrical base.

Hans-Agne Jakobsson (1919-2009) was designing in the golden age of Scandinavian design. Swedish interior decorator and furniture designer Hans-Agne Jakobsson is best remembered for his softly glowing, glare-free lighting fixtures, which were inspired by the "organic modern" approaches of Danish lighting master Poul Henningsen and Finnish icon Alvar Aalto. Jakobsson created a range of pendants, floor lamps, wall lamps, and table lamps that showcase a penchant for diverse materials and forms, as well as a deep understanding of lighting effects.
