Swedish designer Alf Svensson devised the Collector series of lighting in the 1950s. One of three designs, the wall-mounted lamp is defined by its solid brass band that holds a conical metal shade which projects the light in two directions. Small perforations in the shade allows the light to shine through. The name references the collectability of the series, profiling mid-century lighting design at its very best.

<p>Alf Svensson (1929-1992) was an innovator. It was during the 1950s, 60s and 70s that the Swedish designer created some of his most noteworthy pieces. Like many of his Scandinavian peers, Svensson used traditional materials such as teak, rosewood and leather to create furniture in the Scandinavian Modern style – and often together with his contemporary, Yngvar Sandström.</p> <p>A skilled designer despite being little known to the public, he created several iconic mid-century designs for a number of prominent Nordic brands including Fritz Hansen and DUX.</p> <p>His series of mid-century lamps for the Swedish lighting company Bergbom’s helped to breathe new life into the company, which benefited greatly from his large international network and meticulous approach to his metier. Today, some of his most prominent lighting designs are available at MENU, under the name Collector – a reference to the enduring relevance and collectability of his works.</p>
