Pair of large, glass “Palace” lamps for Holmegaard by Michael Bang, produced in Denmark from 1979 to 1985. Substantially weighted glass bases with fluid-like volumes. Because of their large size and the refraction of the faintly blue glass, this pair of lamps is mesmerizing and effortlessly finds its place in a large room. The brass necks each have three e26/e27 sockets and two pull-strings anchored by brass balls. The new, tailor-made fabric shades are replicas of the originals, matte white with a fine texture and discreet rolled edge.

Michael Bang (1942-2013) was the son of Holmegaard’s first designer, Jacob E. Bang. He managed the design of mouth-blown glass lamps at Holmegaard Glassworks in the 1980s when he joined the company.

Holmegaard Glassworks was founded in 1825 in Fensmark, Holmegaard, but the company first drew attention between the 1930s and 80s with the designs of Michael's father. Michael Bang continued the legacy. He is known today for his designs in the art of glassmaking, and remembered by those who worked with him as a clever, fun person and engaging speaker.
