A graceful, capsule-form table lamp by the Danish designer Just Andersen. Andersen invented Disko Metal, an alloy of lead and antimony, named after the Disko Bay of Greenland, where he grew up. It was used to produce “Bronze” items such as these lamps. After casting, the pieces were patinated as bronze, copper or brass. Just Andersen had his own show rooms in Berlin, London, New York and Los Angeles. He was celebrated in his time and has been ever since. His classic designs remain highly collectible.
