Hans Agne Jakobsson T363/12 Chandelier in Brass
Hans Agne Jakobsson, T 363/12 chandelier in brass, Sweden, 1960s-1970s.
This chandelier has 12 cylindrical shades with a grid, square roof rack within brass heads. The shape recalls the symmetrically of a beehive whilst the roundness of the glowing orbs brings in softness. The brass reflects the light vertically whilst the light itself is emitted on a horizontal manner. This gives the lamp a sculptural and three dimensional feeling.
Hans Agne Jakobsson (1919-2009) was active between the 1950s and 1970s, 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.
