To Jørn Utzon, his father’s naval engineering drawings became a lifelong fascination with ships and boats, along with light. More than a decade before Jørn Utzon created his masterpiece, the Sydney Opera House, he put his childhood fascination into this pendant, combining successfully the smoothness of the lines of a ship with the source of light for the first time.
For Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jørn Utzon, his father’s naval engineering drawings prompted a lifelong fascination with ships. Such interest is illustrated in Utzon JU1, a pendant whose distinctive collared shape and sharp lines echo the industrial silhouette of a ship. First released in 1947, the Utzon is now available in three versions: brass; white; and the original split colour model, crafted from lacquered brass and steel.

Creating things for people. This is the primal theme of probably Denmark’s most famous architect of all time: Jorn Utzon. He was educated at the Danish Royal Academy of Fine Arts, concluding in 1942 and then developed his talent further at studios such as the Alvar Aalto studio in Helsinki. This inspiration helped Jorn Utzon to gradually optimise his talent for creating architectural, organic space while maintaining respect for people, nature and surroundings.
Jorn Utzon saw a clear parallel between music and light. Both are crucial for feeling emotions. In developing his designs for Lightyears, he worked to ensure that light constantly promotes the atmosphere of a room, whether it is used for cosy togetherness, for a particular function or for sheer inspiration. His universe, “Music,” reflects musical interest and fascination. The design of his first lamp for Lightyears draws a golden thread from the Sydney Opera House. It completes the picture of Jorn Utzon as a lamp designer and architect of highest international stature.
