LYFA's Mosaik Up/Down pendant light is a luminaire classic designed by Bent Karlby in 1959. Its design is based on two elements: conical shades and a decorative brass tube that functions as the luminaire's suspension and connects the two separate shades. The cones direct the light both up and downwards creating a fascinatingly unique light in the space.
The playful brass details of the Mosaik Up/Down pendant 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.
