Brass and Smoked Glass Wall Light for Westal, Sweden Second half of 20th Century

$ 2,613
  • Description
    This wall lamp was manufactured by the Swedish company Westal in Bankeryd, Sweden. The historical company was founded in 1947 and for more than seven decades, it has developed functional and aesthetically pleasing luminaires.

    With the brass frame holding the smoked glass shades, the lamp clearly shows the craftsmanship of the maker, with beautiful geometric forms and symmetry dominating the structure. The popularity of brass can be attributed to its golden hue that adds warmth to the style's modern aesthetic. This wall lamp further emulates the mid-century modern movement's guiding principles through its clean lines and geometric shapes. Next to the brass, the translucent, smoked glass shades stand out with a shape that resembles a pressed sphere. The smoked effect assures that even when the light is off, the shades have an interesting appearance. Furthermore, thanks to the arrangement of the brass arms and the shades, this wall lamp divides the light evenly and brightens the brass beautifully, creating a cosy, warm visual effect.

    Sconces and wall lamps are a timeless type of lighting fixture that can easily elevate their surroundings. These fixtures have been in use for centuries, and never go out of style. This is especially true for mid-century brass models - like this piece.
