Shelter lamp by Normann Copenhagen

Thursday, 28 November 2013

Danish design duo HolmbäckNordentoft has designed the Shelter lamp for Normann Copenhagen. Made of lacquered steel, it is available as both a table and floor lamp, in classic black or limestone grey.

The white inner side of the shade provides a reflective effect while its wide, curved shape directs the light.

HolmbäckNordentoft say of their design: "The idea came from speculating about how one could create a visual connection between the cord and the lamp. A cord is a necessary evil. How could we make a necessity into a virtue? That's when we got the idea for the curved opening at the bottom of the lamp and the brass detail, which became a main feature of the overall feel of the Shelter."
