A very rare ceiling lamp designed by Hans Bergström. Produced by his own company around 1952. Ceiling mount in brass with twelve holes for cables coming out. Going to a "sputnik" style mid piece with six holes for two cables in each hole leading to six lamp shades in multichrome lacquer. Very good original condition with some wear to the original lacquer on the shades. All electric components have been recently replaced out of necessity.
This lamp has to our knowing never surfaced on the Market up until this day. Another example of the lamp with cocoon plastic shades pictured in an ad For Sven Staafs furniture store. Clear influences from Italian lighting from the same period and especially Gino Sarfatti is evident in this design. Bergström did visits to Italy during this time and most likely took inspiration for this lamp from these trips. The boldness of using multi colored shades and the lamps extravagant look was most likely too much for the Swedish audience and production scarce. The lamp was possibly made as a prototype or in extremely few numbers.
