Opal Shade

Danish light master Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen has masterminded the Opal Shade pendant designed in the 1950s. Opal glass offers something special when it comes to light, and the internationally renowned light designer chose opal glass for the Opal Shade pendant to create a special warm glow. Combined with the grooves in the wide metal shade, this creates an exciting and elegant light effect. With its classic shape, sophisticated solid brass details and high quality craftsmanship, this pendant is a beautiful feature above the dining table or the kitchen table, in the hallway or in a nook where it will create life and attention. Choose between several classic colours in Warm Nordic’s exclusive silk matt colours for an extraordinarily beautiful and durable surface.

The opal pendants were originally designed in the 1950s by Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen, who is a real pioneer in Nordic light design and who was very fond of working with opal glass. Opal Shade is part of a range of opal pendants characterised by their uncompromising design and choice of material. Opal is characterised by the meeting of beautiful coloured metal and the matt glass where the outer layer has been sand-blasted to create a special calm without reflections. The pendants epitomise a time when Danish light master Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen and architects and designers from all over the world spent considerable energy and passion on the art of lighting and created singular designs. The Opal Shade pendant has been hand picked for the Warm Nordic range as a celebration of iconic Nordic design that contributes with valuable diversity in modern interior design.
