Table Lamp

Gunnar Eklöf & Ulla Eklöf

(1909 - Stockholm - 1963)
Brass 45 x 29 cm (17.7 x 111.4 in.) Stockholm - 1939

This rare lantern-style table lamp was designed by Ulla and Gunnar Eklöf and produced by Corona Belysningskultur in 1939. Ulla and Gunnar met while working in the office of Greta Magnusson Grossman in the late 1930's. The couple married in 1938 and soon formed their own company, Gunnar och Ulla Eklöf Möbelarkitekter HB.

The husband and wife team designed lamps and furniture. Ulla also worked as an interior designer and wrote for the Swedish interior journal 'Hem i Sverige', and Gunnar Eklöf is today best remembered for the many variations of 'Åkerbloms-stolen', a chair design based on the ergonomic ideas of Professor Bengt Åkerblom.

This is the only known example of the design.
