Mid-Century Metal and Opal Glass Ceiling Lamp, Europe 1950s

$ 3,135
  • Description
    Materials were key elements of modern lighting design, and nothing speaks mid-century modern more than the combination of metals, such as brass and glass. At its most basic level, mid-century modern designs are known for their sleek lines with organic shapes, using new materials and methods to re-imagine traditional pieces.

    This ceiling lamp has a traditional looking structure with a surprise element: the long, strongly curved arms. The combination of metal and glass was especially characteristic of Scandinavian designers of the era as the metal shines beautifully when the light is on. While this model’s design revolves around the curved arms, its two glass shades are also arresting. They seamlessly lifted from the arms, and further accentuate each other’s shape. This design is very successful at mixing traditional and modern elements whilst staying true to the guiding principles of early mid-century modernism.

    This ceiling lamp has a unique and stylish design that aims for functionality just as much as it aims for aesthetic appeal. Mid-century modern design hasn’t been bested by any other movement since its heyday, and it remains the style of our own time. This is because - as this ceiling lamp shows - the pieces in this style still look contemporary.
