Pendant light 157 was created by Andreas Hansen in 1965. It consists of a carefully hand folded sphere of cream colored plastic foil. This multi-faceted enclosed form emits no glare which makes it appropriate for hanging at high or low levels.
This is the medium sized version in good vintage condition with some very minor blemishes as seen in the photos.
Standard E27 light bulb socket.
Andreas Hansen trained at the Kunsthåndværkerskolen (the School of Arts and Crafts) and at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts’ School of Furniture Design. He has since worked in furniture and industrial design.
He has had his own design studio since 1963, designing furniture, lamps and home furnishings, mainly for businesses based in Denmark.
At the beginning of his career, Andreas designed a series of new and inventive lampshades for LE KLINT. They featured sharp zigzag pleating that set them apart from the company’s earlier models. Like the remainder of the range, Andreas Hansen’s lamps are pleated by hand.
LE KLINT is a lighting company established in 1943, but the story of the company dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, when a hand pleated lamp shade was folded to fit a paraffin lamp both designed by architect and master of engineering P.V. Jensen-Klint.
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.
