Svend Aage Holm Sørensen
Svend Aage Holm Sørensen was a Danish designer who created lights for Fog & Mørup in the 1950s. 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. He used it to create very sculptural light up through the 1960s. The metal was often burned and cut with rustic edges and surfaces. This pendant light is a beautiful example. Several lamps made by Holm-Sorensen & Pedersen Belysning ApS are on display here on Vintageinfo. You can find them over here.
