Gothic Wall 1

Bent Karlby, 1970.

GOTHIC I is a distinctive wall lamp full of character designed in 1970 by Bent Karlby. The premium solid brass fixture emits soft upward lighting that leaves a beautiful pattern on the wall, while the brushed surfaces are subtly illuminated through the narrow peepholes. 

The GOTHIC series consists of two wall lamps with one or two geometrical shades. Each shade is made from a solid brass plate with vertical brush lines that is folded down the centre to create its iconic, recognizable expression.

Bent Karlby 1912 - 1998

Bent Karlby is widely regarded today as one of Denmark’s most productive and versatile lighting designers of the 20th century. He started his collaboration with LYFA in the 1940s, which was a partnership that would last nearly four decades. Bent Karlby is known for his soft light, organic shapes and hallmark peepholes. During his career, Karlby moved more towards pure geometric shapes such as the cone, cylinder and arc along with playful colours. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Bent Karlby never employed staff in his studio. He wanted things done his way and was known for his uncompromising work ethics. 

 

Among his most famous works are the Peanut, China, Japan, Mosaik, Ninotchka, Barcelona and Pan pendants, the Ergo table lamp as well as the Peacock, Quadrille, Pan and Gothic wall lamps.
