60s tablelamp for Bergboms
Bergboms—also called Bergbom & Co AB—was a modernist, Swedish lighting manufacturer established in 1940. The company’s founder, Efraim Ljung, was a business mogul who also founded Ljungs Industrier, the precursor to the iconic DUX furniture manufacturing company, for which designers like Alf Svensson and Edwar Wormley contributed flagship designs.
While the granular details of Bergboms’s history remain obscure, the company’s general arc is less murky. Active in the postwar period, Bergboms produced a variety of sleek, often directional modernist lighting for the Swedish market—a range similar to contemporaneous Swedish brand Asea. Bergboms’s lighting designs include table, desk, wall, and floor lamps, as well as pendants and chandeliers, in a range of materials from brass and steel to ceramic and glass.
This marked large and rich decorated table lamp is in good condition consistent with age and use. The hood is original and rich decorated, in good condition with some spurs of usage and eventually easy to exchange.
