    Step into a world of timeless elegance and innovative functionality with the "Auditorie" brass pendant Lamp, designed by the renowned Sven Middelboe for Nordisk Solar, Denmark in the 1960s. Model 74603. Currently, we have four of these exceptional pieces in stock, offering you a rare opportunity to own a set of untouched mid-century gems.

    The "Auditorie" pendant is a marvel of modern design, defined by its layered "hat-shaped" shade and meticulously crafted lower diffusers. The sumptuous satin brass finish envelops spun aluminum, illuminating your space with an incomparable warmth and sophistication.

    Bathing your room in a soft glow, the interior of the two larger shades is painted matte white, diffusing light in an unparalleled manner. The smallest shade interior, in matte gray, adds a subtle contrast, providing a light source that's not just beautiful but also practical. Measuring an impressive 18.5” in diameter by 10.5” in height, this pendant is the largest in the iconic "Auditorie" series and was ingeniously designed to maximize light distribution without glare. With an E26 porcelain socket, the lamp accommodates a standard light bulb with a maximum wattage of 200 watts, offering both form and functionality. A six-foot white cord and a 5.25” diameter original white-painted canopy come included, making installation a breeze. (The white cord can easily be changed to a longer length or different color.)

    What elevates these pendants into a category of their own is their flawless, new-old-stock condition. Preserved meticulously since the 1960s, these pieces have never been used and show no signs of wear, such as dents or scratches. Seize this extraordinary opportunity to invest in a set of "Auditorie" pendants, as much a work of art as a functional piece. Illuminate your home, not just with light but with a story—a story of Danish design excellence, mid-century innovation, and unblemished preservation.

    Imagine these pendants gracing your space – individually or in a cluster. Four are available, offering a unique opportunity to own a piece (or pieces) of Danish design legacy. Whether you're an aficionado of classic design or seeking to add a touch of vintage luxe to your interiors, the "Auditorie" pendant is a luminous blend of history, artistry, and illumination.
