Rare original glass and steel ceiling lamp, model Parachute, designed by Erik Gunnar Asplund and manufactured by Ateljé Lyktan in Sweden, 1959.

Rare to come to market, this extraordinary suspension lamp was originally designed by renowned Swedish architect Erik Gunnar Asplund in the 1920s and later manufactured by Ateljé Lyktan in 1959.
