Brass Top

A table lamp with unique, solid brass details, created in the 1950s by the Danish designer, Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen, who is internationally acclaimed for his lamps. The Brass Top table lamp is perfect for a home office with its original design, in which solid brass takes pride of place, from the base and stand to the brass top of the asymmetric shade. The several elegant details include the little ball on the top of the table lamp, which is in harmony with the ball of the power switch, not to mention the light holes along the edge of the metal shade, which were characteristic of both Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen and the era, and which add an extra dimension to the lighting effect. Choose from several classic colours in Warm Nordic’s exclusive silky matt quality paint, which guarantees an extraordinarily beautiful and durable surface.

The unique Brass Top table lamp was originally designed in the 1950s by the Danish designer, Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen, who was a major pioneer in the world of Nordic lighting design. The table lamp is characterised by its playful, asymmetrical 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 Brass Top table lamp has been specially selected for the Warm Nordic range as a tribute to iconic Nordic design that invests modern décor with invaluable diversity.
