A rare mushroom table light in acrylic plastic by Danish architect Bent Karlby. Karlby worked mostly for Lyfa but in this case it is produced by ASK Belysninger, Denmark. Great condition with no cracks or breaks. Standard E27 light bulb socket.
Danish architect-designer Bent Karlby was born in Århus in 1912 and graduated from his hometown’s technical school around 1932. During World War II, he joined the Danish resistance movement. In 1943, he fled to Sweden and opened a design studio the following year. Most of Karlby’s lighting designs for Lyfa possess a “Space Age” aesthetic expressed in metal, acrylic, or glass.
