CLAUS BOLBY "SYMFONI" PENDANT LIGHT
There was some amazing experimentation with various types of acrylic by artists and designers in the 1960's and 70's.
However most of such activity took place in either the United States (think Charles Hollis Jones or Vasa Mihich) or in France (notably Marie-Claude de Fouquières)
The aesthetic and the material simply not associated with Scandinavia.
This makes Claus Bolby's fantastic “Symfoni” pendant light all the more special. While evocative of the period, it is clearly a regional anomalie.
Bolby began producing variations of the Symfoni lamps in the basement of his home in central Denmark at the age of twenty-three.
His lighting was very commercially successful for a period of 15 years. Bolby would also design lighting for major manufacturers such as Lyfa.
This is an exceptional example from his oeuvre, with champagne colored steel with a blue acrylic shade, in excellent condition.
