The world-famous Concert™ is a Danish design staple. The unique shade configuration is visually characteristic of Utzon’s design ethos and is reminiscent of his greatest work, the Sydney Opera House. A three-step, glass diffuser casts pleasant, even light, making the Concert a perfect centrepiece in both a living space or meeting space.
Creating things for people. This is the primal theme of probably Denmark’s most famous architect of all time: Jørn Utzon. He was educated at the Danish Royal Academy of Fine Arts, concluding in 1942 and then developed his talent further at studios such as the Alvar Aalto studio in Helsinki. This inspiration helped Jørn Utzon to gradually optimise his talent for creating architectural, organic space while maintaining respect for people, nature and surroundings. Jørn Utzon saw a clear parallel between music and light. Both are crucial for feeling emotions. In developing his designs for Lightyears, he worked to ensure that light constantly promotes the atmosphere of a room, whether it is used for cosy togetherness, for a particular function or for sheer inspiration. His universe, “Music,” reflects musical interest and fascination. The design of his first lamp for Lightyears draws a golden thread from the Sydney Opera House. It completes the picture of Jørn Utzon as a lamp designer and architect of highest international stature.
