Svend or Sven Aage Holm Sørensen was a Danish designer who created lights for Fog & Mørup and Lyfa in the 1950s, before he started his own business, so is said.

He founded his company Holm Sørensen & Co in the mid 1950s. The production started with desk lights, but Svend invented his own special type of brass and copper. He used it to create very sculptural lights up through the 1960s. The metal was often burned and cut with rustic edges and surfaces. This wall light is a beautiful example.
