Stunning collage wall light by Willem van Oyen, manufactured by RAAK in the Netherlands, circa 1960.

The piece is made of high quality silver coloured metal with beautiful glass inclusions, uniquely shaped like different planets. The tubes are made of copper, all together giving it a unique appearance that would make an amazing addition to any interior.

In great original condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina.

Willem van Oyen started drawing at the Rijksacademie voor Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. He also worked as a decorater at the warehouse Galeries Modernes. After the war he started focussing on glass art. In 1947 Van Oyen together with W. Bergmans founded atelier BEVO. When this collaboration ended after a couple of years, van Oyen continued on his own, with the company growing to be an internationally known glass atelier. Van Oyen was a pioneer of the “appligue´-technique and experimented with using all different sorts of technical possibilities like glass in concrete, sand and fusing. With these new techniques he created monumental glass walls for factories, town halls, schools and churches. He also designed and manufactured various objects such as lightings for RAAK (such as these appliques) and Herda and a glass curtain for the palace of the crown prince of Saudi Arabia.
