The function of a floor lamp is to provide constant comfortable reading light while softly illuminating its surroundings. Snow represents an innovative lighting concept. With its design and light distribution, Snow is a floor lamp, a table lamp, even a pendant - all in one. Snow illuminates a room. Gives new character and ambience to the room. Louise Campbell has again seen light from yet another angle. Louise Campbell Industrial designer graduating from the Danish School of Art and Design in 1995. Since then, she has established herself as one of Denmark’s foremost designers. Louise Campbell has received a number of awards and grants, the prestigious Finn Juhl Architecture Prize among them.

An organic element in the room, lightly hovering, yet with an insistent presence. Multidimensional with an intriguing depth whose mystique only increases when it is lit. Ross Lovegrove has rendered his interpretation of the Louis Poulsen lighting philosophy in materials and idiom alike. Ross Lovegrove. A famous pioneer of industrial design. At his Studio X in London’s Notting Hill, he has fully exploited the potential inherent in digital technology. In 2005, he won the World Technology Award for design, and his works have been showcased at MoMA in New York, the Pompidou Centre of Paris and the London Design Museum.
