Copper pendant light by Werner Schou for Coronell Elektro. Denmark 1960s


Width: 18 centimeters, Height: 26 centimeters, Depth: 18 centimeters

A rare pendant light by Werner Schou made from copper sheet loops altered with pieces covered with matte black lacquer. These are painted orange inside in order to reflect a fiery glow onto the copper. A truly stunning light effect from every side. The light has a white lacquered inside for a neutral light projection downwards over a table or object.

Good condition with some minor marks and scratches. One small dent as seen in the last image. Standard E27 light bulb socket.

Coronell Elektro A/S started in Hellerup, Denmark 1964, the owner and designer of the very sculptural lamps was Werner August Hugo Schou, the company closed in 1991. The materials for the lamps were a mixture of copper, aluminium, iron, wood and brass, designed in staggered strips with built-in glass/plastic stones in a prism design. It produced a sculptural lighting effect that was very characteristic of Werner Schou’s lamps. Werner and his wife were regularly in the late 60s in Hamburg to sell lamps and had good success with it in Germany as well. In the 70s, lamps were produced in an extension to their house in Hellerup. There were the machines and 3-4 ladies who assembled the lamps. They put slats together, inserted prisms etc. In the 80s things went downhill for the Coronell lamps, in line with fashion and Werner Schous’s age, he died in 1995. The lamps are what you would today describe as the cult lamp series abroad, which sell well and hold their value well.

I try to make the pictures reflect the true look, color and condition of the piece. If you have any questions or want additional photos please send a PM before buying.
