This is a classic pendant light by Carl Thore for Granhaga Metallindustri, Sweden 1970s. Brushed golden aluminum with a high gloss golden reflector ring painted orange inside spreading an orange glow around the centre of the shade. Good condition but with some bulging on one side of the larger disc. This is seen in the last image and it is well reflected in the price. Designers label still attached.
Standard E27 lightbulb socket.
The real name of the designer known as Carl Thore was Sigurd Lindkvist, and he was born in 1916 in Åmal in Sweden’s Dalsland. After working for a lighting firm called Luko, in 1961 Lindkvist joined Granhaga Metallindustri, for whom he designed lights and was also head of sales, remaining with the company until he retired in around 1981. Lindkvist adopted the pseudonym Carl Thore for his Granhaga light designs on the spur of the moment when he was presenting the lights to a client who asked the identity of the designer. “Carl Thore,” Lindkvist blurted out, these being his two middle names.
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.
