Designer Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen
SVEND AAGE HOLM-SØRENSEN
Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen sketched on everything: envelopes, theatre programmes, even tram tickets. Some remained sketches and ideas, but others he brought to life in the form of lamps. Thanks to a combination of imagination, talent and vision, Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen played an important role in Danish lamp design. From the 1950s onwards, Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen took the lead in the world of modern lighting during the heyday of Danish furniture design. As a licensed ornamental metalworker, Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen possessed an experimental, yet balanced understanding of materials, creating innovative, high quality lamps with an international, yet Nordic look. In consultation with Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen’s family, Warm Nordic is upholding the legacy of this great lighting designer and will regularly launch more House of Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen iconic lamp designs.
