  • Catalogue Essay

    The present lot is one of 26 original double-spiral wall lights designed by Poul Henningsen in 1955 for the Scala cinema and concert hall, one of five performance spaces within the Århus Theatre. An extensive renovation in 1981 dramatically reduced the size of the Scala, during which time 12 lights were de-accessioned. The other 14 remain in situ.
