Brutalist Pendant by Hans Bergström and Erik Hoglund, Sweden

$1,595.12

About

Brutalist Scandinavian pendant by Hans Bergström and Erik Hoglund for Ateljé Lyktan, Sweden. Conical shape in patinated copper and glass medallions. Dimensions fixture: height 18.1 inches (46 cm), diameter 8.7 inches (22 cm). From ceiling till drop: about 78.7 inches (200 cm). The fixture on offer is equipped with an E27 socket - also suitable for E26 bulbs - and is provided with a new fabric covered power cord. The shape of the lamp on offer shows some similarities with Bergström's successful Struten lamp. But instead of a round conical shape, Bergström used an octagon as a starting point. Besides, this lamp is not made of plastic but executed in patinated copper. Hoglund's glass medallions, with impressed motifs borrowed from Nordic mythology, lend the lamp a mysterious character. As electrical requirements vary from country to country, we recommend that you always have lights checked and installed by a local professional. Hans Bergström (1910-1996) was a Swedish architect, designer and entrepreneur. After finishing high school, he already worked as a designer in the studio of Ystad-Metall in southern Sweden for several years. Between 1929 and 1933 Bergström studied in Stockholm at the Swedish School of Arts, Crafts and Design (nowadays Konstfack). After graduating, he worked for Ystad for another year, after which he founded Ateljé Lyktan in 1934. He would remain associated with this company as chief designer and director until the late 1960s. Bergström also turned out to be a very productive designer. Over the years, he has designed numerous different models for both Ateljé Lyktan and Asea. One of his best known creations is the ‘Struten’ (Cone) pendant lamp, which earned him a gold medal at the 1954 Milan Triennale. Erik Hoglund (1932-1998) was, in a way, the maverick of Swedish glass design. From a young age on he was interested in drawing and crafts. At the age of 16 he was admitted to the Konstfack, where he initially specialized in drawing, but later switched to sculpture. Nevertheless, he would eventually make a name for himself in yet another discipline. In 1953, Boda glassworks was looking for a young designer to modernize the factory's range. Via the Konstfack they ended up with Erik Hoglund. Although he had little experience with glass, this did not prevent him from getting the job. Hoglund worked hard to master glass art and with success: as early as 1954 the Swedish National Museum acquired his glassware and in 1957 he was awarded the prestigious Lunning Prize, after which the international interest in his work increased significantly. Hoglund's glassware is very sculptural and recognizable. It is usually quite thick and regularly contains air bubbles and other irregularities. In addition, he often decorated his glass with (impressed) figures and symbols borrowed from folk art or primitive cultures. After working for Boda for 20 years, Hoglund started his own studio in 1973, where he focused on manufacturing ironwork and furniture. In the 1980s he returned to glass and designed pieces for firms such as Pukeberg and Strömbergshyttan. Furthermore, Hoglund designed many works in public space over time, both in iron and glass.
