To Jørn Utzon, his father’s naval engineering drawings became a lifelong fascination with ships and boats, along with light. More than a decade before Jørn Utzon created his masterpiece, the Sydney Opera House, he put his child- hood fascination into this pendant, combining successfully the smoothness of the lines of a ship with the source of light for the first time. & The choice of white or polished chrome finish reminds one of the waves and the northern light.
