Kai Ruokonen for LYNX Chandelier in Brass and Orange Acrylic


Kai Ruokonen for LYNX, chandeliers, brass, acrylic, Finland, 1952

Kai Ruokonen is a Finnish designer that mostly works under the artist ‘Kai Finnmark’. This chandelier was designed for the Palace Hotel in Helsinki in 1952 and manufactured by LYNX. That same year, Ruokonen also designed a similar shaped lamp for the Vaakuna Hotel in Helsinki. The pendant lamp has a chain suspension that is adjustable in height. The shade itself is created from four layers in brass. Between the inner two brass layers, there is an orange, transparent disk attached. This creates an interesting division and contrast with the brass. The same orange, transparent acrylic is used for an inner shade. Due to the different layers, the light is able to radiate through, which creates a beautiful atmospheric effect. Because of the brass and the orange acrylic the light shines in an elegant, warm hue. This wonderful, atmospheric light fits perfectly with the nicely patinated brass. Please note that this lamp is adjustable in height.
