Chandelier by Ingeborg Lundin

Ingeborg Lundin, an acclaimed designer, was the first woman hired to design for Orrefors Glasbruk in Sweden. In 1962, Lundin was assigned her first major lighting project, a commission for Götabanken in Stockholm. She designed a large spherical chandelier built up of triangular and circular pressed glass elements mounted on a brass frame. The Museum’s recently acquired chandelier, designed about 1962–1963 and made between 1963 and 1967, is a variant of this design. This chandelier hung in the foyer of the B’nai Israel synagogue in Elmira, N.Y.,until 2012, when the congregation moved to another location.
