Large pendant light “Strips” by Brylle & Jacobsen for Quality System. Denmark 1970s


Sold Out


Width: 47 centimeters, Height: 35 centimeters, Depth: 47 centimeters

The “Strips” pendant lights by Flemming Brylle and Preben Jacobsen were made in several sizes and colors. The majority of them were made as globes but some other shapes were also produced. This is a cone shaped larger very rare version.

The light is comprised of white acrylic sheets, fixed to each other like a jigsaw puzzle and held in place by five smokey transparent acrylic pieces to form a frame for the white sheets.

Good vintage condition with only minor signs of use. Standard E27 light bulb. Rewired for safety.

Quality System was started in 1965 in Helsingør, by the artist Flemming Brylle and industrial designer Preben Jacobsen. Preben cleaned up some playing cards and suddenly got the idea to put together a lamp by cutting 40 cards so that they could be inserted into each other and form a sculpture. Together with his friend Flemming Brylle, he now developed the first lamp, made of a transparent material: antistatic polyacrylic, (a type of plastic) in many pieces that could be easily sent and collected by the customers, the model was called Cosmo Light.

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.
