Peanut

The PEANUT lamp is a mid-century classic, full of character, designed by Bent Karlby in 1946. The attractive, curvy-shaped shade is crafted from mouth-blown opalized glass, complemented by a brass top and bottom. PEANUT provides a soft and comfortable lighting experience, wherever you choose to hang it.

As a result of the thickness of the 3-layered opalized glass, PEANUT emits a uniform and extremely comfortable light. The bottom glass diffuser can easily be detached to create a more direct and downwards lighting experience. This is a gorgeous lamp with the ability to cozy up any environment.

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.
