Mosaik
Pendant Lamp – Wall Lamp – Table Lamp – Floor Lamp
Bent Karlby, 1959

The Mosaik lamp collection is based on a simple geometry: a conical shade and a brass tube that allows for the creation of several lamp designs. At the time of its release, Mosaik was a bold and playful piece of lighting for the modern home. Today, Karlby's creation has a decidedly vintage look.

The lighting is downward, complemented by a discreet upward flow from the open top.

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.
