Amp lamp series Normann Copenhagen

The Danish designer Simon Legald has designed a sophisticated range of lamps called Amp for Normann Copenhagen. The Amp lamp series consists of one table lamp and two pendant lamps. Amp is characterised by its high-quality materials of glass and marble that add a visual fragility and sensuous heaviness.

Normann Copenhagen presents Amp lamp series. A hi-fi inspired range of lamps. Amp has a nostalgic and at the same time, contemporary feel. The idea for the lamp’s shape came when the designer was restoring an old 60’s radio at home. While searching for spare parts for the radio, he was captivated by the glow that emits from the tube amplifier. The simple oval shape and the glow of the bulb is an obvious reference to this, just as the name Amp refers to the English term; tube amplifier. The proportions for each lamp have been carefully designed. For example, the marble sockets of the two pendant lamps are smaller than the marble base of the table lamp to emphasise their different functions. Read More

The new old light by KIMU

The New Old Light by KIMU Design mimics the traditional appearance of a lantern and makes a classic East-West connection. The Taiwan-based studio have created the New Old Light with an industrial-style reflector attached to a paper lantern diffuser that can be pulled down or collapsed out of sight to vary the lighting intensity.

I adore the minimalist table lamp by the Taiwanese design studio. By employing the flat border to emulate the standard appearance of lanterns, The New Old Light by KIMU continued its style in the plane quadrant. With the modify of the wood proportion of The New Old Light, which developed the extension of breathing in a virtual space, the air particles seem to be paused at the moment of light on. The New Old Life is the ideal goal that KIMU keep trying and experimenting to reach. Started from The New Old Light, KIMU is combining and converting those ancient objects to modern life products.

Normann Copenhagen presents the Ikono classic pendant, designed by Simon Legald. Ikono is a beautiful classic pendant lamp with a pure and simple feel. The lamp has a cone-shaped glass cylinder and two coloured steel shades in matching tones which rest on the glass. Together, these features go to make up a classic pendant lamp.

The light is directed by the top shade while the lower shade ensures anti-dazzle. Ikono is based on the Danish lighting tradition, but the designer Simon Legald has stripped the design down to its essence and eliminated any unnecessary components and screws. The sharp edges of the shades are softened by curves where the shades meet the glass. The glass cylinder itself adds a visual lightness to the lamp. This gives Ikono classic pendant both a graphic and soft feel. Read More

I am in the process of upgrading my home office these days and one of my new purchases is Caravaggio P Black from Lightyears. Caravaggio P Black is a series of metal pendants with an eye-catching high gloss lacquer. The suspension technology is masculine in construction, creating the right counterbalance to the shade’s feminine lines. A pendant in good balance in other words, perfect for an upcoming Feng Shui office!

The curves passed through a number of shapes during the design process, but this version captures a feminine form.

Mingus by Cecilie Manz at Folklore

The understated Mingus pendant by Cecilie Manz for Lightyears is now available from Folklore. Manz is a master of simple expression. Made from a single piece of matt coated aluminium, the lamp’s subtle muted colour palette juxtaposed with it’s bold angular form make for a well-considered and engaging design concept.

 

Mingus by Cecilie Manz at Folklore6

 

The Mingus pendant boasts a pure iconic shape with clear references to the past, yet with elements that guide to the future. The lamp exhibits a clear continuation of the style associated with her ever-popular Caravaggio lamp series but it is also vastly different. It’s sharp lines are a dramatic departure from the feminine curves of the Caravaggio series. The Mingus pendant is in a class of its own, and the designer has consciously worked to create a wholly new, unique look. Read More
