Ergo Lamp
Bent Karlby, 1971

Evoking the space age of the 1970s, the first Ergo lamps came in bright colors and were made entirely of plastic. The plastic materials have been replaced with a three-layer opal glass core and a colored glass shade. This charming pendant brings soft ambient lighting to its surroundings while emitting a subtle and pleasing downlight.

Bent Karby

Bent Karlby is widely regarded today as one of the most productive and versatile Danish lighting designers of the 20th century. He began collaborating with LYFA in the 1940s, a partnership that would last for nearly forty years. Bent Karlby is known for his soft light, organic shapes and distinctive peepholes. Over the course of his career, Karlby gravitated toward pure geometric shapes such as the cone, cylinder and arc, as well as playful colors. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Bent Karlby never employed staff in his studio. He wanted things done his way and was known for his uncompromising work ethic. His most famous works include the PEANUT, China, Japan, MOSAIK, NINOTCHKA, Barcelona and PAN pendants, the ERGO table lamp and the Peacock, Quadrille, PAN and GOTHIC sconces.
