Mass Light by Norm Architects

Mass light designed by Norm Architects is made of brown marble and glass. The shape of Mass light is bold, strong and masculine and yet feminine curves soften the expression. The well-known shape lets you focus on the beauty of the marble, its aesthetic structures and brown colors.


Mass Light


Inspiration for creating the Mass Light became when traveling cities such as Paris, Barcelona and New York. The Norm architects Kasper Rønn and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen was fascinated by the streets lamps; the characteristic cast iron top – looking a bit like a hat – with a semitransparent glass sphere at the base.

Back in the studio The Norm architects detached the street lamp from its original use and transferred the shape and combination of materials in order to design an indoor pendant – the Mass Light. The pendant is made of brown marble and glass, as the two architects were keen on creating a lamp made from natural stone with its warm sensual hues. The unusual use of such a massive piece of marble for a lamp gives an exceptional sense of quality and durability. Read More

Vinyl Record Animations by Michael Hansen

Usually, it’s all about design and interiors here on purodeco, but this Graphic Vinyl Record Design is so incredibly beautiful that I just had to make a post about them. This vinyl for the modern classical composer Allan Madsen Gravgaard was designed by Danish designer Michael Hansen. The idea was to translate Allan’s sensorial music into a visual experience with elements of sensuality.


Michael Hansen


Michael Hansen‘s album is separated on the records two sides. There is not an A- or B-side. Each has its own front page; Waves is a visualization of the music performed by nine trumpets in a line. It’s made as simple as possible with nine circles on a line. Crystal Tapestry is a pattern of crystals that has no front or back end; it refers to a crystal that merges into itself. Inside it’s made a visualization that combines the two sides, a crystalized wave. The patterns on the record give the design a visual sensuality. An analog animation with a 50 Hz strobe lamp and made it interact with the music.
