€ 550,00Price

Red tube floor lamp with interesting design features such as the fluently shaped base and stem, the correct proportions and the details (small round lens on top, elegant switch incorperated in the tube and steel connections). It serves as reading light but can certainly be used as atmospheric light as well.


Anders Pehrson (1912 - 1982)

Pehrson was born in Gothenburg in 1912 and after his engineering degree he began to work as a design manager at Philips in 1952. He was a skilled designer and a PR man beyond the ordinary. When he bought atelié Lyktan in 1964, it was crucial for the company's future. With cornerstones such as form, function, color and family, he came to create countless design classics that would put ateljé Lyktan on the world map. He also decided to focus on mass production of the best-selling lamps, which gave atelié Lyktan a more large-scale and international orientation.

Pehrson's curiosity led him to a lighting fair in Hannover. Once in Hannover, he took the opportunity to pay a visit to Volkswagen. The sight of all the colorful cars in a row awakened something in Pehrson: if you can make cars in a variety of bright colors, surely you can do the same with lamps! He quickly decided to apply more color in his designs.


In very good condition with small user signs on the base and tube related to age (some scratches but no dents).
