Hammered Brutalist Sconce by Moe Bridges, c1971 Item # R8076
This double candle scone is a fine example of a trend wihin a trend within a trend. The streamlined Modernism of the 1950s and '60s produced a more ornamental and experimental version of itself called the Contemporary style in the late 1960s and 1970s. A controversial and much debated sub-trend of the Contemporary style is known as Brutalism. Like their architect counterparts, Brutalist lighting designers embraced rugged, rough-edged, hand-formed sculptural effects that boldly expressed the materials being used. This one can be traced to a 1971 Moe Bridges catalogue, which we are lucky enough to have in our archive.
