Böhlmarks Glass and Brass Swedish Modern Ceiling Light, Sweden 1940s

$ 4,180
  • Description
    The timeless appeal of Swedish furniture was set in the past, by a cluster of iconic designers, but it continues to progress and fascinate. While the modernity of Swedish design is rooted in the functionalism movement, the era’s stylish designs, like this semi flush mount, still have a certain Swedish warmth to them.

    There is something universally appealing about Swedish furniture. Its simplicity is often copied, but the vibe is difficult to emulate. The Swedish design blueprint set during the first few decades of the 1900s is based on characteristics that can be traced in this model: functionality, an understated, unornamented design created from high quality materials, and most importantly, by the most skilled craftsmen. This Böhlmarks semi-flush mount fixture is suspended, leaving a small gap between the ceiling and fixture. For this reason, it is deliberately more noticeable than a flush light and is typically selected to visually enhance the surrounding space. This gap also allows for an uplit effect, while providing a direct downward light. Thanks to this, this ceiling fixture produces great ambient light. The brass canopy and rod pair incredibly well with the glass shade, directing the attention to the glass’s shapes and pattern. The frosted glass has a striped pattern with thin, clear lines dividing the frosted sections. The result is a modern, eye-catching look that is brilliant in its simplicity.

    Arvid Böhlmark's lamp factory was a Swedish importer and manufacturer of lighting fixtures between 1872 and 1977. In 1947, at the company's 75th anniversary, Böhlmarks was still counted as Sweden's largest company in its category. As this model shows, their lighting pieces were of the highest quality both in material and visual terms.
