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 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

A pendant in good balance in other words, perfect for an upcoming Feng Shui office!
Creating a simple, soft design for small and large pendants was the main idea behind Cecilie Manz‘ Caravaggio series. The curves passed through a number of shapes during the design process, but this version captures a feminine form. Caravaggio P Black pendant is named after the Italian Baroque painter Caravaggio, who is known for his dramatic paintings with large contrast between light and shadow. Read More
