Pair of T174 “Selectra” by Hans-Agne Jakobsson for H-A Jakobsson, Markaryd AB. Sweden 1960s



Height: 25 Centimeters; Width: 18 Centimeters; Depth: 18 Centimeters

The Swedish light master Hans-Agne Jakobsson created a series of metal pendant lights called “Selectra” in the late 1960s. They came in various forms, sizes and colours and are made from different sizes of metal squares lined up to let the light exit up and downwards creating very decorative shading. Some are in clusters of 6 or 8 small lights but these are two single pendant lights each made from 2 white and one red square. The light is also known as T174. This without doubt one of Hans-Agne Jakobssons rarer and more minimalistic creations.

Good condition with only very few scratches at close examination. Standard E27 light bulb. Only sold as a pair.

Hans-Agne Jakobsson was undeniably one of the world’s most versatile and productive lighting designers and manufacturers in the fifties, sixties and seventies. He was also one of the best and most important designers in the Scandinavian era of golden and soft non-dazzle light. His earlier designs follow Scandinavian giants such as Poul Henningsen, Paavo Tynell and Alvar Aalto and he should be seen as important as the concurrent world renowned Nordic lighting designers Greta Magnusson-Grossman, Lisa Johansson-Pape, Verner Panton and Jo Hammerborg.
