About this vintage design furniture

This is a classic pendant light by Carl Thore for Granhaga Metallindustri, Sweden 1970s. White lacquered aluminium with a chrome reflector ring painted orange inside so that it spreads an orange glow around the centre of the light. Some scratches and marks consistent with time and reflected in the price. Bottom, anti glare, plastic grid is intact. It takes a standard E27 lightbulb. 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.
