This table lamp was designed by Bent Karlby and produced by Lyfa, in Denmark, during the 1950's. It features a ribbed brass base, on top of wich is an opaline white glass, where a green metal lampshade is set. In original and good vintage condition.
Lyfa was originally founded ca. 1924 under the name of Københavns Lampe Og Lysekronefabrik. Based in the greater Copenhagen area and renamed Lyfa ca. 1930, the firm began producing table lamps inspired by the multi-shaded PH Series (from 1925) by Poul Henningsen for Louis Poulsen. Lyfa's lighting continued to show this influence through the 1940s.
By the 1950s, Lyfa had built an international reputation for original, high-quality, modernist lamps. In the postwar era, the company collaborated with esteemed architects and designers to produce minimalist, sculptural, "Space Age" table lamps, wall lights, and pendants, especially in colored glass, plastic, and enameled aluminum.
