moreA totally glam pair of Raak wall lights, titled, "Chartres," by Willem van Oyen Sr, circa 1970's, Holland. This pair of Brutalist 1970`s wall lights consist of a glass panel with clear, red & green rock crystals finished with glass granules characteristic of the work of glass artist Willem van Oyen Sr. Each panel slides into a solid quality brass frame creating a composition which reflect a warm light. The triangular shape of the arms on the brass base adds depth to the composition. Each wall light takes two small standard screw light bulbs up to 40 Watts each. At the top of the brass frame there are two holes where the fixture can be screwed to the wall. In good vintage condition in line with age, with some attractive patina on the brass that adds character. One corner of one of the glass panels has been slightly rubbed over time, but it is hardly visible. Both lights are newly rewired and in full working order.
Raak Amsterdam is best known for their organic modern design in the 1970`s. Raak which is Dutch for "to strike" worked with local artists. Their designs combined glass and various metals for a sophisticated futuristic style. Willem van Oyen Sr. (1921 - 2004) was born in Amsterdam. He specialized in art glass, pioneering the applique technique. In 1947 he founded the studio ‘ BEVO’ which designed and produced lamps for Raak, of which, his best known are the "Chartres" lighting inspired by the medieval stained glass from the Chartres Cathedral in France. less
