Panflute Extremely Rare Wall Piece by Bent Karlby 1968 Lyfa

About

Panflute - extremely rare light relief designed by Bent Karlby in 1968 and produced by Lyfa - gorgeous aluminum wall lamp with six different inner coating - in good vintage condition. The Panflute is comprised of six narrow aluminum 'panpipes' with rounded aluminum covers. Each panpipe features a matte colored inside, starting with orange on the left, then red, purple, blue, light blue and ends with dark blue on the right. The aluminum covers conceal three light bulbs but can be moved up and down for changing the bulbs. It is all mounted on a square aluminum plate, which features two hooks for wall hanging. When lit, the light is guided both upwards and downwards along the panpipes, while the colored inside adds warmth and softness to the ambiance. An exceptional and ultra rare vintage collectible addition to any space! In the late 1960s Bent Karlby created a series of Pan-themed lights, originally produced by Lyfa. The first versions launched was the Pan-opticon wall light (with chrome yellow, zinnober red or cornflower blue inner coating), the all-aluminum Pan pendant and the Panflute. In 1970 Bent Karlby designed two other versions, the Pandean wall light (with orange or light yellow inner) and the Pantre pendant (with orange or light yellow inner). The following year, Karlby and another Danish lighting producer, Ask Belysning launched the Pan in Plexiglas as table light, pendant and wall light. All original, but rewired with 1.5 m (4' 11.1") white plastic cord - for safety and beauty - and fitted with on/off switch placed at convenient height at the cord and Euro style two-pin plug - which is easily changed to your specific plug. Tested and fully functional. Cleaned, labeled and packed in protective bag. Light source: Three bulbs, Edison screw-fittings (E14/E12 with adapter) Max 40 Watt each.
