About this item

This is a quite rare aluminium pendant light with brushed golden surface by Carl-Thore (Sigurd Lindkvist) for Granhaga Metallindustri. It projects a nice soft light down over a table and the inside of the high gloss circular golden band gives a very decorative warm orange glow.
It has a few scratches and marks as seen in the last image but an over all good vintage look.
The light still has the designers label.
The real name of the designer known as Carl Thore was Sigurd Lindkvist, and he was born in 1916 in Åmal in Sweden’s Dalsland. After working for a lighting firm called Luko, in 1961 Lindkvist joined Granhaga Metallindustri, for whom he designed lights and was also head of sales, remaining with the company until he retired in around 1981. Lindkvist adopted the pseudonym Carl Thore for his Granhaga light designs on the spur of the moment when he was presenting the lights to a client who asked the identity of the designer. “Carl Thore,” Lindkvist blurted out, these being his two middle names. there's only 1 of these in stock.
