Very rare design lamp by Thorsten Orrling
Modern Scandinavian pendant light
This impressive hanging lamp is super rare. It is mainly made of Aluminum. As a result, there are no traces of rust, but this lamp has of course incurred some damage over the years. But this is not strange, since he is already more than 50 years old. This model was made in several versions. But I have never seen this one with 4 rings on top of each other. They are also manufactured in plastic by Scan-Light AB.
