Aerodrome “Aerodynamic coolness� Alberto Puchetti (Designer)


PH. TOM gusTAvsen

PH. sIMen sKYeR

Aerodrome (Design 2012) Aerodrome is inspired by the aerodynamic design of airplanes turbine engines as well as by the glorious tradition of modern scandinavian design of the 60s in particular by designers like Panton, saarinen and Jacobsen. Aerodrome is a family of lamps designed to adjust the mood of the room towards the smooth coolness typical of first class airport lounges. The table lamp demands to be placed within a clear area. With its curved, sculptural profile Aerodrome already “fills” the surrounding space while its profile is visually rich enough to decorate that part of the room and inspire a feeling of elegance. Also, when light is turned on, the laser-cut profiles of the top help projecting curved shapes of shadow and light on architectural surfaces of the room. When light is off the shape of the lamp is highlighted by the stark contrast of colors and textures between the external surface and the flower-like interior surface of the top.

The design of a lamp goes beyond the pure functionality of illuminating while also trying to create an atmosphere suitable for anyone in pursuit of the idea of “exclusive lifestyle”.

Unika (Design 2012) 13 unika is a mouth blown series of small glass pendant lamps, originally designed for Restaurant grønbech and Churchill in Copenhagen.

DIva FLOOR WaLNUT


PH. SIMEN SKYER

Diva (Design 2009) 31 Diva is a set of wood laminated floor and pendant light sculptures. By making a contemporary light object the two young designers, Thomas and Peter, wanted to pay their respect to the proud Norwegian heritage of wood lamination craftsmanship, and at the same time challenge or reinvent how this material can be used. Diva’s strong yet soft and almost feminine character emerged from experimenting with different curve codes, from which two distinct sets of patterns occurred. The lamp’s outer frame consists of a set of thirty two gently curving walnut or oak laminated plywood slices set around two wooden cylinders. The inner parts consist of a slim metal stem supporting a solid mouth blown frosted glass globe. The floor lamp’s outer frame can be turned in two directions, creating two different sculptures. Diva creates a warm yet dynamic atmosphere when it is turned on, and when off it remains an essential and uniquely aesthetic décor object in any room.

The bulbs placed inside the horns add an extra element of soft, sparkling and translucent light effect to the lamp.

The inspiration behind the Moo lamp was found in northern Norway, in the breathtaking scenery of Hamarøy, where both of the designers have summer houses. Here the moose is frequently seen passing close to the houses and even over the lawns. The designers hope Moo will stand out as a post–modern kitsch trophy, making the viewer smile happily as they recognize this “king of the Norwegian forest”.

Illusion (Design 2010/2011) Illusion combines the functional elements of light and a table. It hovers above the ground, challenging our perceptions of gravity and our idea of two common pieces of furniture, offering the elements of surprise and magic. Combined in one, the lamp and table become the focal point of any space, whilst providing a place for your cocktail or your keys. the shiny white version of Illusion releases a strong and clear light down from the shade element, while the matt black version emits a more sparse and diffused light. Illusion was inspired by the wonders of the scandinavian natural landscape. In particular KjĂŚragbolten, a large rock hovering in the crevice of a mountain above Lysefjorden in Rogaland, norway.

Dokka became one of the best selling norwegian pendant lamps ever produced, until the day sönnico closed down its lighting production and sales of the lamp came to an abrupt end. in 2007 northern lighting decided to relaunch this design classic, taking care to preserve the main shape and features that originally made it such a well–loved light.

Bender (Design 2008) 67 Bender is a large floor decor lamp that also works well as a reading lamp. the organic shape of the lamp starts at the floor with the textile wire going from the wall socket towards the lamp base. From there the base bends and curves its way up from the floor, all the way up to the lampshade. the oversized shade element gives the lamp its recognizable personality and creates a large and focused spotlight. Bender has a matt oil painting that gives the aluminium and steel surfaces a warm touch and sophisticated look. the lampshade is fully adjustable in all directions, making it well suited for a comfortable and illuminated reading experience. Bender is inspired by the often overlooked, but indispensable, workhorse of plumbing: the humble pipe. Bender grew out of a desire to utilize one of the simplest elements of production while still creating a lamp with personality and humour.

Nova (Design 2007/2008) 73 Nova is a pendant lamp series at the interface between light design, handcraft and art. the mouth blown shade of the lamp is made out of three layers of glass – transparent, white, transparent. Nova consists of three different lamp models each of which has an individually formed pattern of transparent glass pieces added manually to each lamp after the main body was blown. every lamp is unique as a result of this manual pattern making. the lamp series also has an innovative and patented hanging solution, which makes it easy to change the bulb even for a novice. the Nova series is inspired by the dusky light from the stars seen in the Nordic sky on a clear night. thus, the Nova series consists of three round light stars: ophelia, callisto and Miranda. Nova emits an even and soft interior light regardless of bulb type used. the lamps are suited for public and private interior spaces and become interesting objects of art in a room even when the light is switched off.

Designer: Anu Moser Anu Moser (born 1945) is a highly recognized swedish ceramic artist and product innovator. she lives and works on the small Island of Donsö outside gothenburg, where ocean and sky become central natural elements of inspiration in her design. Her works have been presented around the world in a great number of exhibitions. the mixture of innovative function and the aesthetic features of simplicity, harmony, softness and yet strictness in form, are repetitive themes in her design. During recent years Anu has focused her attention on the combination of lighting design and art. Among her famous and credited previous work is the Moser pendant designed for Louis Poulsen Lighting, Denmark in 2001/02. “the creative process of arts and crafts has always played an essential role in my life. I have been drawing and painting as long as I can remember, and I started with ceramics when I was 15. During recent years light design, optimal illumination and glass have become a great fascination for me to work with. the idea behind the Nova series has been to use advanced glass techniques of the finest quality glass to create a group of playful, beautiful and contemporary “flying light stars”. the idea of the hanging solution came to me while working in the woods where I noticed a claw like tool used for grabbing timber. this inspired me to create this industrial looking detail of functional innovation from the same basic concept.“

Big Mama (Design 2009) Big Mama is a large floor lamp made out of paper and wood ––basic and eco friendly Nordic materials–– that are used for the shade and the body respectively. Big Mama represents more than simple illumination of space. Big Mama does light up a room, but at the same time it gives the space character and personality. its shape tells us intuitively more about its function. simple, direct… with its iconic and super classical shape, there is no doubt this is a lamp. And yet at the same time the strong, dominant and sculptural character of the object resembles that of an item which does not need to possess a mere function in order to justify its existence. Big Mama lights up a space with a strong, clear, yet warm and mood–creating light.

Butterfly (Design 1964) Butterfly is a small wall lamp designed in 1964 for Høvik Lys and later produced by arnold vik, norway. In 2008 northern Lighting decided to relaunch this norwegian design treasure. Its uniquness lies in the combination of simplicity of form and its well preserved indirect method of exposing light, creating a bright and yet warm atmosphere. It looks simple, but is elegant and decorative as a single item, and is even more so when several are combined in vertical or horizontal groups. the new heat treated copper versions all vary in surface colour and materials structure, and oxidation and time further changes their appearance, making them unique individual objects. “Butterfly” a shining philosophy around white wings Woven into a connecting body a brightness that melts into the eye glittering without glitter Flying without flight Living without life Just as plain as that

Designer: Sven I. Dysthe Sven Ivar Dysthe (born 1931) is often referred to by scholars as the wonderboy of modern norwegian design. He got his certificate of apprenticeship as cabinet maker in 1950 and graduated in Industrial Design from the royal College of art in London in 1953. Sven later opened his own design practice in 1958 and had his career breakthrough in the early 1960s. His works have won a number of national and international prizes, including the Laminette chair for møtemøbler a/S, which won the golden medal at the Ljubljana triennale in 1964 and the Japanese “g-mark” and norwegian Classic award for Design excellence in 1994. Works of his are purchased by institutions such as victoria and albert museum in London, röhsska konstslöjdmuseum in gothenbourg, the national museum in Stockholm, nordenfjelske in trondheim and the national museum in oslo. Sven Ivar Dysthe is first and foremost honoured for his ability to find simple solutions to complex challenges with decisive elegance; Butterfly is as an excellent example of this.

Maze (Design 2006) 91 maze has geometry and symmetry in focus, with overlapping plates in a labyrinthine pattern. The form and elements of maze are created based on the majestic mountains and the complex formations of stone we find in norway’s great outdoors. The light finds its way out at different layers and heights within the shade and gives off a comfortable and even light in the room. In order to complete the communication between form and function, a soft, atmospheric light is projected up to the ceiling.

Designer: Rudi O. Wulff Rudi O. Wulff was born in suburban Oslo in 1983. His educational background is from product development and design studies in Oslo and Valencia. “as a product developer, I try, through my products, to be daring and innovative, but I always maintain rationality in the back of my mind. Things should be challenging, but also have a certain sense of reality. With the ceiling lamp maze I have literally tried to place things on the edge by allowing a large and complicated shade to hang in a simple and light substructure. The result is a new and stylish ceiling lamp which will suit most rooms.�

Oslo Wood (Design 2006) Oslo Wood is a studio lamp with a tripod base. The shade includes a revolving shade piece, which gives the possibility of exciting angles of light in the room. The lamp gives an upward solid indirect lighting effect as well as a warm and diffuse direct light via the shade.

PH. simen skyer

Oslo Wood spreads light in the same way as seen in the forests around Oslo. The beams of light become diffuse upon passing through the shade, mimicking the contours of city light illuminating the sky on a dark winter night, filtered by the trees dominating the ground below. The Oslo Wood lamp’s indirect upward lighting effect relates to the somewhat stronger contours of light that reaches above the treetops.

Specifications Floor lamp shade material: coloured chain link fabric shade colour: Light blue, beige or black Body material: satinised nickel Body colour: metallic, white or black Wire: Black or white (on white version only), 200 cm dimmer switch: Black or white (on white version only) Bulb: e27. max. 100 W 220V-240V 50HZ ˜ net weight: 3.45 kg ce

Designer: Ove Rogne Ove Rogne is head of design in northern Lighting. He was born far up north in the town of narvik, norway. “In Oslo Wood northern Lighting presents a contemporary up–light floor lamp inspired by atelier and photoshoot lighting equipment. It also incorporates inspirational elements from the classical and popular tivoli lamp that dominated scandinavian household living rooms for many years. Decisions on form, function and materials for the lamp have been an ‘art by accident’ type of process, during which the design team spent hours and hours experimenting at the factory floor R&D lab.”

Seed (Design 2007) 103 Seed is a wall–mounted night lamp. Seed creates a unique reading environment through its filtered light source from a low watt energy saving LeD. The focused, yet soft, beam emitted from the diodes makes it possible to read in bed while your partner sleeps. The ‘revolving arm of light’ can point in a variety of different directions and can be easily fixed to the wall in any desired position. The front–end light switch makes it easy to turn the light on and off and, since the lamp does not emit heat. Seed is safe to touch, even by children.

Berg (Design 1967) 109 Through the lamp series Berg the designer Gerhard Berg expresses nature’s richness of form and lack of regularity. The Berg shade elements have a rectangular prism shape and are comprised of acrylic pieces placed together in complex, irregular patterns, rich in contrast and depth. The acrylic elements are formed in different heights. The shapes are fragmented through sandblasted and transparent acrylic pieces. The Berg was originally made in 1967 by Gerhard Berg for his own lounge.

Groggy (Design 2009) 115 Groggy is a funky, tiny, yet highly functional, floor lamp. Both the simple lamp body and its fabric–covered lampshade revolve, thus making it easy for the user to direct and adjust the position of the light beam. Groggy fits well next to a chair or a sofa and allows the user plenty of space for the arm. Groggy is a new addition to Tom stepps’ Blueman Collection of lighting and furniture designs. The Blueman Collection consists of, and expands, the ideas and products that Tom stepp dreams of having in his own home, and which he therefore creates for himself.

Scheisse (Design 2008) 127 scheisse is a large pendant lamp. The lamp pays its respect to the traditional incandescent light bulb, which with its warm light and good colour reflection, has given light to our households for so many years. The classic light bulb is one of man’s most important inventions. Unfortunately this bulb is inefficient, which creates challenges in our threatened environment. scheisse is a blend of art and industrial design, an experiment with light and shadow as well as positive and negative shapes. scheisse creates a distinct shadow and sculpture in its environment.
