Pantre Scandinavian Modern Pendant Pair by Bent Karlby for Lyfa in 1970

About

Pantre, pendant pair by Bent Karlby in 1970 and produced by Lyfa. EXTREMELY RARE Scandinavian Modern aluminum and red ceiling lights in very good, near excellent vintage condition. The name Pantre refers to the three (TRE in Danish) polished aluminum "PAN flute" pipes, carefully arranged back-to-back forming a circular shape. Each pipe has a matte orange, almost red inner, a light bulb in the center of the pipe and a rounded aluminum cover, covering the light bulb. The rounded covers are adjustable, up and downwards, allowing for control of light flow, and at the same time giving you the freedom to alter the lights appearance, almost infinitely. When the beautiful Pantre pendant is lit, the orange, almost red inner becomes even more red and gives off a soft ambient illumination - and the open top and bottom, provides for good luminance in the up- and downwards directions. When idle it is a true scriptural piece of art - hanging from the ceiling. In the late 1960s Bent Karlby created a series of Pan-themed lights, originally produced by Lyfa and in the early 1970s for ASK Belysning. The Pan-themes series included the Pan-Opticon wall sconces (1968-1969), the Pandean wall sconces (1970), the Pan pendants (Plexiglas, 1971) - and the truly magnificent Pantre pendant. This is truly an exceptional and extremely rare opportunity - two rare Pantre pendants with orange, almost red inner coating and both in very good, near excellent vintage condition! A vintage collectible addition to any space - hanging beside each other over a large Danish midcentury dining table or over a kitchen island. They would also look stunning lighting up a high ceiling hallway, or as a center piece in a spiral stairway. Endless uses in the stylish Scandinavian Modern home! All original, but rewired with 2 m (6' 6.7") high end quality, white fabric cord - for safety and beauty. Tested and fully functional. Cleaned, labeled and packed in protective bag. Light source: Six bulbs, Edison screw-fittings (E27/26) Max. 75 Watt each.
