Henri Mathieu designed this highly original fixture around 1970.

The pendant is shaped like double conch and is made of bands of brushed aluminium. The internal surface of the blades is lacquered orange. When illuminated the lamp radiates a feeling of warmth.

The condition is consistent with age and usage with some, because of the material inevitable, minor scratches.

This lamp is sometimes wrongly attributed to Lyfa Denmark. Potentially because it resembles the Konkylie, a somewhat comparable pendant with metal bands, designed by Louis Weisdorf and-indeed-produced by Lyfa.
