Einar Bäckström Model "7402" Brass and Leather Floor Lamp, Sweden ca 1950s

Sold Sold
  • Description
    This classically stylish floor lamp is a distinctively Swedish Modern model, with immediately recognizable features. According to the Museum of Malmö, Einar Bäckström founded his workshop in 1918 for the manufacture of lighting and ornaments, and as the museum notes, “all patterns were composed by Mr. Bäckström himself”.

    Made in Bäckström's workshop in Malmö, this “7402” lamp has an unmistakable Swedish mid-century look. From the clean lines and the brass - the ultimate material for Scandinavian mid-century lighting designs - structure to the soft edges and intuitive functionality, this model is timeless. Swedish lighting manufacturers were masters of creating designs with great texture variety as this floor lamp also demonstrates: the pairing of brass and leather creates an interesting visual effect, where the traditional look of the organic material meets the modern look of brass. The twisted, rich brown leather wraps around the stem from the very base of the lamp with its textured look contrasting beautifully against the smooth brass. The brass’s decoratively shaped part above the stem also gets highlighted thanks to the contrast of the polished brass base and the leather framing it. Thanks to Bäckström’s masterful sense of proportions, this model is perfectly balanced visually. Apart from the aesthetics, the quality of this table lamp is also true to its mid-century heritage. The precise construction of the lamp ensures that every detail is carefully considered, from the proportions to the mix of materials. The light coloured fabric drum shade adds a final layer of design elements, with its clean lines and subtle elegance, it perfectly complements the body, casting a warm and inviting glow.

    This lamp exudes timeless elegance and showcases the designer's meticulous attention to detail. Einar Bäckström’s creations were a fusion of form and function, with a focus on decorative metal objects and stylish lamps. Brass was his preferred base material, lending an air of opulence to his designs.
