About

Peacock (in Danish PÅFUGL) - pair of wall lights - designed by Bent Karlby in 1974 and produced by Lyfa - very RARE pair of lighting sculpture in near excellent vintage condition.

Absolute gorgeous design! Top-of-the-line from Bent Karlby and internationally sought after piece!

This circular wall lamp is comprised of seven layered lacquered metal circles, fitted on a shallow white lacquered metal wall mounting. The layered metal circles are colored in seven different colors, spanning from bright red to dark purple, decreasing in size towards the top dark purple circle. The white wall mounting acts as the last white circle, thus making it part of the design rather than be hidden behind the shades.

Originally advertised as a light relief, and it truly embodies this when lit, as the emitted light breaks through the space between the seven layers of circles, making them radiate soft warm light around it - an exceptional vintage collectible addition to any space!

Condition:
This pair of Peacock wall lights are sourced from same owner, and both are in near excellent vintage condition with few normal signs of usage and age. Lyfa label intact inside one light. Please see the photos!

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 plug - which is easily changed to your specific plug. Tested and fully functional.
Cleaned, labeled and packed in protective bag.
