Jørn Utzon is perhaps best known for his design of the Sydney Opera House, but his work wasn’t exclusively on such a large scale – some 10 years before his crowning glory, he designed the Jørn Utzon Tivoli pendant lamp.
Yes, amazingly, these futuristic pendant lights date back to the late 40s and is still available today in a choice of finishes. The two above show a white aluminium finish and a polished inner frame. There is a third version available with a polished outer area.
It hasn’t dated for 60 years – and it’s unlikely to date in the near future. So not a bad investment at £235.
