Petal Table Lamp4

Petal – A Charming Table Lamp in a Simple Design

Normann Copenhagen presents the table lamp Petal. Petal is a calm and simple designed table lamp by the Swiss designer Jörg Boner. The idea was to design a table lamp made of metal with the light bulb hidden. At the same time the lamp takes advantage of the reflection to create a cosy atmosphere of comfortable lighting.


Petal is a simple table lamp with a light and airy expression. The table lamp is available in a discrete shade of light grey, which supports the room’s décor without disturbing its balance. Use it as a nightlight on your bedside table, as a reading light in the office, or to set a cozy mood in the living room. Read More

bent aircraft plywood bird lamp

The bird lamp by Martijn Westphal

The bird lamp designed by Dutch designer Martijn Westphal. Beautifully crafted from aircraft plywood, the lighting object maintains its form by bending thin sheets of wooden material, where the surface acts as a translucent cover for diffusing light. Cut by using water-jets, the bird shapes pop out from the wrapped frame, creating a contrast in illumination within each bird silhouette.
