Designer Alf Svensson
Bulbs not included.
Imagined by the industrious Swedish furniture designer Alf Svensson in the 1950s, Chandelier 3 is one of three lighting designs in the Collector series. Shaped from a central band of solid brass, six conical metal shades direct the light upwards and downwards to illuminate with ambient light. Small perforations in each shade disperse the light outwards, creating intriguing shadows. The sophisticated mid-century design has timeless appeal thanks to its considered combination of graphic beauty and classic elegance. Not only functional, it is also a decorative lighting fixture in any space.
One of three light fixtures created in the 1950s by Swedish designer Alf Svensson, the Chandelier 5 presents a statement-making mid-century aesthetic. Its band of solid brass holds ten geometric metal shades which direct light both upward and downward. Small perforations in the shades allow further light to shine through. Its timeless look, typical of the Scandinavian Modern period in which it was designed, lends itself to any setting, making it equally at home as an illuminating feature in a public or private space.

Alf Svensson (1929-1992) was an innovator. It was during the 1950s, 60s and 70s that the Swedish designer created some of his most noteworthy pieces. Like many of his Scandinavian peers, Svensson used traditional materials such as teak, rosewood and leather to create furniture in the Scandinavian Modern style – and often together with his contemporary, Yngvar Sandström. A skilled designer despite being little known to the public, he created several iconic mid-century designs for a number of prominent Nordic brands including Fritz Hansen and DUX. His series of mid-century lamps for the Swedish lighting company Bergbom’s helped to breathe new life into the company, which benefited greatly from his large international network and meticulous approach to his metier. Today, some of his most prominent lighting designs are available at Audo Copenhagen, under the name Collector – a reference to the enduring relevance and collectability of his works.
