I can totally see how Greg and Lana thought these were some sort of Rolodex. Jeff, Amber and Amy PureHome were so close, but Mel Heth said the magic words! This week’s What the…? are custom (or ”funky” as Mel put it) wall sconces by the Danish design firm Fog and Morup.

Architect Aage Herlow Wall Sconce & Pendant

Wall Sconce :: Pendant

Modernist architect Aage Herlow custom designed these wall sconces we found on 1st Dibs for the St. Michaelis Church in Fredericia Denmark. The aluminum blades were painted in alternating colors, giving them a look that today is so retro-industrial. (I added the ceiling pendant on the right to show what they look like lit up.)

What do you think? Would you put these retro wall sconces in your home or house of worship?

    Thanks for sharing the image of the pendant. Looks less like a Rolodex when it's beaming bright light.

    I should have said wall sconce….that's what I pictured in my head, but I could only think of the exterior lights on our house (they are kind of like a wall sconce).

    No you were so close. If you stick a piece of bread in it, it's toast! ;)

    Oh, that happens to me all the time!
