The Dokka Pendant

If Mad Men decided to take its mid-century modern pizzazz on the road into the glacial climes of Norway, the Stratos Collection has a pendant light that would serve its style-consciousness well. The precursor to the Dokka pendant was the first Norwegian light to ever be awarded the Golden Medal at the Milan Triennali. Designed by Birger Dahl, the post-war icon debuted in 1954 but it has never lost its fresh appeal, available in black, brown, chrome and white.Request a Quote

Considered one of Scandinavia’s leading post-war interior architects, Birger Dahl was born in 1916 in Moss, Norway. He was educated at the Norwegian National Academy of Art and Design (SHKS) in Oslo, one of the first students to be supervised and guided by Arne Korsmo. He was one of the founders of NID, Norway’s association for professional industrial designers, in 1955. And in 1947, Dahl became a teacher at SHKS while also working as the chief designer for Oslo-based lighting manufacturer Sønnico from 1945 to 1957. It was his designs for this company that put him on the map, his products shown in a traveling exhibition of Scandinavian Design that toured the United States and Canada from 1954 to 1957 creating a serious amount of buzz. Dahl won the Jacob Award in 1968, and he published the book Venice, A Cultural Adventure in 1994, just four years before he died.

His creative philosophy was as simple (and beautiful) as his designs—that they be honest, logical and functional; that the light object must always reach complete harmony with its surrounding humans and architecture. Proof that it served him well, his Pendel s/10053, produced for and sold by Sønnico, was the first Norwegian lamp to ever be awarded the highly regarded Golden Medal at the Milan Triennali (in 1954) and one of the best selling pendants the country ever produced. When Sønnico ceased production and closed, the lamp became a casualty of the company’s demise. We at Global Lighting are glad Northern decided to revive the design, releasing an updated version of it in the Dokka pendant, which we have included in its Stratos Collection and distribute exclusively in North America. We salute designers like Dahl, the founders of modern design as we know it.
