The pendant light “Trava” was made in three sizes. This is a pair of the smaller version (20 cm wide) connected to an elipse-shaped teak wood spacer keeping the pendants apart. You can adjust the spacer to the desired height depending on your space. Brushed aluminum with orange inside creating a stunning fiery glow when lit.

Each lamp shade has a diameter of 20 cm and is 16 cm high. The teak wood spacer is 37 cm long.

Good condition with a few scratches to the red inside, no dents. Standard E27 light bulb sockets.

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.
