Silhouette

A sculptural table lamp with an asymmetrical idiom, designed in the 1950s by the internationally renowned lighting designer, Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen. With its elegant structure, the Silhouette provides excellent indirect light, a characteristic of other iconic lamps of the era. The Silhouette table lamp adds character to its surroundings with its tilted-back, oblique shade and indirect lighting, achieved via reflection from the small upturned light source against the wide metal shade. The result is a timeless study in light and asymmetry, with added details in solid brass. Choose from several beautiful colour combinations, ranging from self-coloured to multi-coloured, in Warm Nordic’s exclusive silky matt quality paint, which guarantees an extraordinarily beautiful and durable surface.

The Silhouette lamps were originally created in the 1950s by the Danish designer, Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen, who was a major pioneer in the world of Nordic lighting design. An elegant, sculptural floor lamp is also available in a similar design. Silhouette is characterised by its asymmetric idiom, which was also a feature of foreign lighting design at the time. As such, the design is a Nordic interpretation of an international trend, in which designers all over the world invested huge energy and passion in the art of lighting. The Silhouette floor lamp has been specially selected for the Warm Nordic range as a tribute to iconic Nordic design that invests modern décor with invaluable diversity.

Designer

Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen sketched on everything: envelopes, theatre programmes, even tram tickets. Some remained sketches and ideas, but others he brought to life in the form of lamps. Thanks to a combination of imagination, talent and vision, Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen played an important role in Danish lamp design. From the 1950s onwards, Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen took the lead in the world of modern lighting during the heyday of Danish furniture design. As a licensed ornamental metalworker, Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen possessed an experimental, yet balanced understanding of materials, creating innovative, high quality lamps with an international, yet Nordic look.
