Hans-Agne Jakobsson Fata Morgana floor lamps Sweden 1987





Very impressive pair of ‘Fata Morgana’ floor lamps designed by Hans-Agne Jacobson and Manufactured by Markaryd in Sweden in 1987.  These lamps are super spectacular due to their large size. The lamps consist of a chrome base with three chrome stems placed in a triangular form. The shades are segmented into two white painted aluminium shades, with a smaller circle on the bottom and a large round shade on top. The small shade carries the light source which is a halogen light. This bounces beautifully on the larger shade and gives off that nice indirect light. These are largest versions made of this model, and are very special in a pair. Stunning and minimalistic lamps that due to they monumental size are a conversation piece in any space.


Kindly note that these lamps are priced and sold in a set of 2.


Hans-Agne Jakobsson was born in Hvadhem/Gotland, Sweden. After finishing an apprenticeship as a carpenter, he studied architecture in Gothenburg and began his career as industrial designer at General Motors. Subsequently he became an assistant to the prominent furniture designers Carl Malmsten & Werner West. In 1951 he founded his own company, Hans-Agne Jakobsson AB, at Markaryd. There he not only created lighting design but also candlesticks & furniture. Influenced by the nature especially the southern part of Sweden, with its glittering lakes & vast dark woods, Jakobsson came up with imaginative ways with light & illumination. As a talented designer who experimented with brass, iron, glass, fabric and surprisingly wood shavings. He mastered direction and colour of light like only few people did. Cleverly designing so g laring bulbs & irritating decorations disappear; uniting practicality & a sense of wellbeing. Like his famous colleague, Poul Henningsen, Jakobsson counts among the light designers who became known for their attenuated, soft lighting. His iconic designs based on wood shavings were produced by Ellysett AB.
