The T 547 came out in 1965 and was only in production for a few years. It is a large, 50 cm wide, complex construction and in my opinion the most beautiful of the HAJ pine veneer pendants. It is constructed from 15 rings of carefully bent pine veneer around a pine wood frame. The pine wood grain shows a beautiful projection when lit up.
There are a few marks here and there but no real breaks in the wood. Standard E27 light bulb.
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.
The story about the invention of this kind of lamp:
“Hans-Agne Jacobsen invented the laminated pine fixtures by accident during a Christmas decorations in the Markaryd store . He wanted to soften a couple of dazzling light bulbs, had some laminated pine around and rapidly put together some temporary fixtures. A customer came in and wanted to buy the arrangement and Hans-Agne Jakobsson found himself with an article that was unprecedented. Laminated pine fixtures became an export success that was sold in virtually every corner of the world.”
