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
