Sold Out


Height: 25 Centimeters; Width: 40 Centimeters; Depth: 40 Centimeters

Iconic Swedish pendant light “Bumling” with high gloss brown lacquer. Very good condition with only very few little scratches on the very bottom of the shade. Unfortunately the top switch is broken off as seen in one photo. Since this is a one light bulb version this switch has very little function since the light is usually hard wired. Plastic grid “raster” in perfect condition.

Standard E27 light bulb socket and original plastic ceiling cup.

Bumling, designed by Anders Pehrson for Atelje Lyktan, is a pendant that despite earning its iconic status in the 1970s, still looks modern in today’s homes, and represents great Swedish quality and design now as then. ‘Bumling’ means boulder in Swedish, and is used colloquially to describe things colossal or otherwise unwieldy. It is what a friend of the designer Anders Pehrson allegedly called Pehrson’s new pendular lamp when it was first exhibited at the 1968 lighting fair in Gothenburg. The lamp in question was bulbous, bright green and over half a metre wide. This was the birth of Bumling, a Swedish design classic.

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.
