PEANUT PENDANT LIGHTING BY BENT KARLBY 1946 LYFA

Professional seller: Danish Vintage Design

968 EUR / 1.180 USD

Description

PEANUT (P 163), pendant lighting designed by Bent Karlby in 1946 and produced by LYFA - extremely attractive blown opal glass ceiling light with polished brass, in very good vintage condition.

Blown matte opalized glass with an attractive curvy shape, complimented by a polished brass top and bottom. The brass bottom carries narrow peepholes, a Karlby trademark, and hold an opal glass diffuser plate - matte on one side to diffuse the light optimally. The bottom brass fixture is screwed onto the glass shade by four small screws. Towards the top, a flat brass "lid" is screwed onto the glass shade to lock it in place.
The thick opal glass shade, as well as the bottom glass plate, has a smooth inside and a matte outer, and are designed to provide a uniformly lit surface, while ensuring a soft comfortable light.

In 1949 Bent Karlby designed a range of lights, produced by LYFA - 12 chandeliers, 13 pendants, two ceiling lights, 13 wall lights and one floor lamp - many similar with softly curvy opalized glass shades and decorative brass tops / bottoms, but different in their shapes and sizes.
Karlby designed this curvy opal glass pendant light with narrow waist in 1946, and it was produced by LYFA under the name P 163. It was relaunched among the lighting designs Karlby created for LYFA in 1949 - this time in three sizes. In 1952 LYFA changed the name to PEANUT lamp. Some may also refer to this pendant as Snowball pendant.
