Very nice and rather rare white table lamp by Benny Frandsen from the late 1980s. The lamp is in the style of Poulsen. Heavy lamp that is solidly assembled and gives a very beautiful light. In excellent condition, without flaws.
Benny Frandsen was born in Skanderborg, and trained as an electrical engineer, mainly because his mother wanted it. His real dream was to design and produce lighting. He first started by designing a number of lamps for a local nightclub. He persuaded his boss to come up with a collection of lamps, this was unsuccessful.
In the 1960s Benny Frandsen started producing a number of square and geometric lamps himself, but unfortunately the sales of these lamps did not go well. Benny Frandsen came up with the idea that the Danish people liked round lamps, which is why he designed a spherical lamp, this became the "Ball" lamp.
This was the start of Benny Frandsen's career! Everyone wanted a Ball lamp, which with its smart magnet design fits in every room and style. Ball's design remained a great success, and in a short time there were other, different variants.
In the 1970s, Benny Frandsen's production was produced in a factory in Skandenborg, so that the high demand for the Ball lamps could be met. The company did not go well, which is why it was bought out by Frits concern in 1993 and was called Lyskilde, where Benny Frandsen still worked as director of the company. In 1996 Benny Frandsen bought the company back, and the company was called Frandsen Lighting A/S.
In 2005 Frandsen bought a small lighting company, named after Verpan. With the licensed license, the well-known Globe lamp was designed by Verner Panton. With the production of the Globen lamps, these lamps became a great success for the Frandsen brand. Today, Frandsen and Verpan are licensed to produce about 80 lamp designs by Verner Panton.
In 2011 Frandsen and Verpan were licensed to produce a range of furniture and carpet designs from Verner Panton.
