Description This floor lamp is the “G20” model by Swedish designer Hans-Agne Jakobsson. This mid-century model couples brass and fabric, creating a beautiful modern look.

This appealing and very rare lamp consists of a pleated fabric shade that is supported by a thin brass pole. The shade, which is closed on the top, spreads the light evenly and gives a beautiful subdued light that is very characteristic for the work of Hans-Agne Jakobsson.

At the base of the stem, there is a signature brass ring that can be found on multiple of Jakobsson’s designs, such as on the “B99” table lamp. The heavy foot that keeps the lamp firmly in place, is made of cast iron and is marked “Hans-Agne Jakobsson AB” at its base.

About the designer:
Hans Agne Jakobsson was a Swedish interior decorator and furniture designer. He was famed for his imaginative light fixtures, which utilize unique angles and materials to create a soft quality of light.

For example, in his 1960 fixture, Lampadaire, the lampshade is opaque and ribbed in order to distribute ribbons of light. Born in 1919 in Gotland, Sweden, Jakobsson went on to apprentice as a carpenter before studying architecture in Gothenburg. First working as an industrial designer for General Motors, he later founded his own company after being an assistant to the designers Carl Malmsten and Werner West.

Today, Jakobsson’s works can be found in private homes as well as public institutions throughout Sweden. He died in 2009 in Sweden. ~H.
