Bent Karlby (1912–1998) was a Danish designer known especially for his lighting fixtures – he is considered one of the most prolific and versatile Danish lighting designers of the 20th century. Many of Karlby’s luminaires are based on various organic shapes and indirect light often complete with details, such as peepholes, that filter the light softly pleasantly. Towards the end of his career, however, he also designed several luminaires with clear geometry and simple functionality. Karlby collaborated with the Danish brand LYFA for over 40 years, and he is perhaps best known for the lighting creations he designed for the brand.
