Rare pair of flame cut Danish Brutalist brass flower wall lights by Holm Sørensen, 1960s. Danish Mid-Century Modern Brutalist and rustic brass wall light in the shape of a large flower with 16 leaves surrounding a big round shiny center. Designed by the versatile Dane Svend Aage Holm Sørensen for his own company Holm Sørensen & Co. in the 1960s. His signature technique for working with brass is used in this piece: The metal has been flame cut and acid treated to enhance nuances and create effect and uniqueness in every lamp. The 16 leaves each have three small, long holes that creates wall shadows when the lamp is lit making the illusion of a flower or a sun even greater. Model 5201 known as "The Sun". E17 bulb and switch on cord. Rewiring free of charge. Beautiful vintage condition consistent with Holm Sorensen's method of adding patina to his pieces. About Svend Aage Holm Sørensen: Danish designer Svend Aage Holm Sørensen (1913-2004) founded his company Holm Sørensen & Co. in the mid-1950s. He was a versatile and experimental designer who worked with many different materials, shapes and techniques. He is known to be not traditionally Danish in his work, as he was more playful and colorful than Danish designers such as Arne Jacobsen and Poul Henningsen. He developed his own technique to work with brass and copper, where he would flame cut and acid treat the metal to enhance nuances and make every lamp unique in its own right. He also worked with ceramics and produced several series of lamps, vases and decor.
