Overview

The Pendant Light by Jørn Utzon for &Tradition is an iconic design of 1947. This lamp was inspired by his father's naval engineering drawings and his fascination with light. More than a decade before Jørn Utzon created his masterpiece, the Sydney Opera House, he put his childhood fascination into this pendant, combining successfully the smoothness of the lines of a ship with the source of light for the first time. The choice of copper, white or polished chrome finish reminds one of the waves and the northern lights.

&Tradition reworks design icons from past masters and creates tomorrow’s classics in collaboration with contemporary designers, upholding the tenets of craftsmanship to produce furniture, lighting and accessories that meet modern needs for function, comfort and beauty.

Jørn Utzon

One of the greatest architects of the 20th century is certainly Jørn Utzon, Danish architect born in 1918 who created some of the most notable modern icons like the Sydney Opera House in Australia or the Kuwait National Assembly. Jørn Utzon also designed a few smaller objects, like the Spring Glassware Set now proposed by Architectmade. Utzon’s work begins as poetry, seeing architecture and objects as art, embedding thoughtful functionality, structural integrity, and sculptural harmony. This marriage of beauty and function earned him the prestigious Pritzker Prize in 2003. As a fellow Pritzker Laureate, Frank Gehry commented “Utzon made a building well ahead of its time, far ahead of available technology, and he persevered through extraordinary malicious publicity and negative criticism to build a building that changed the image of an entire country. It is the first time in our lifetime that an epic piece of architecture has gained such universal presence”.
