STIN.com's Jørn Utzon-inspired Concert P1 Lamp is expertly crafted and faithful to the original design, offering a smooth, sleek slice of Scandinavian minimalism to any room it hangs in. It consists of four glass shades which offer exceptional diffusion of light, creating a warm, comforting environment. It also, however, it illuminates the two upward shades and part of the cord, meaning that illumination is both bright and soft, with the parabola preventing any glare, making our STIN Concert P1 Lamp the ideal centrepiece for your dining or living room.
As the name suggests, the Concert P1 Lamp has its roots in one of the most iconic musical venues in the world. First designed as part of the Sydney Opera House, its tapered, layered shades evoke the same sweeping curves and crisp white panels of one of the most famous buildings of the 20th Century. During the Concert P1 Lamp's development, Utzon sought to combine both the geometric and the natural, evoking the form of the seashell to create something that was simultaneously eye-catching and understated. What finally emerged from the workshop was a triumph of form, function and heart-stopping beauty. If you like the style of the Concert P1 Lamp, you might also like the Louis Poulsen Doo-Wop Pendant Lamp.
Born in Copenhagen in 1918 and raised in Aalborg, it is sometimes easy to overlook the fact that Jørn Oberg Utzon was so much more that 'the man who designed the Sydney Opera House'. Indeed, his work as a furniture designer holds many of the hallmarks of his most iconic design, with the smooth, organic curves, fresh bright panels and geometric, angular flourishes. The influence of some of his mentors, from Alvar Aalto and Arne Jacobsen to Poul Henningsen and the Eames, heavily influenced his work in his Copenhagen studio, along with the iconic lighting and furniture pieces he would produce while settled in Sydney. It is little wonder, then, that he is still seen as a national hero in both Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
