LYFA's Mosaik floor lamp is a luminaire classic designed by Bent Karlby in 1959. Its design is based on two elements: a conical shade and a decorative brass tube that connects the shade to the base. The cone directs most of the light downwards, but the open top allows a small stream of light to be directed towards the ceiling or wall.
The playful brass details of the Mosaik floor lamp are very typical of designer Bent Karlby, but the clear geometric shape differed significantly from the organic forms of his early career. Despite its simplistic look, the Mosaik luminaire collection was, indeed, quite bold at the time of its creation and was specifically designed for the most modern homes of the era. Today, however, the beautifully minimalist Mosaik luminaires easily find their place in any private residence as well as restaurants, cafés and other public spaces.
