As part of our tour de force around the power of details, DANISH™ invites you to take a look around you to find beautifully designed details. Let the light guide you…
LAMELLA pendants from LeKlint
Simplicity, subtle curved lines, pure white light – all key components of how this beautiful modern design will quickly become a timeless classic. Inspired by the delicate pleats on the underside of mushroom caps, commonly known as lamella, these handcrafted lamps are ideal for the dining room, hallways, and other places in the residence, illuminating in a natural and soft way.
To stay true to nature’s form, the old production handcraft known as ‘PLICA’ has now been reinstated into the pleating technician’s routine at LeKlint in order to create these beautiful new lamps. The LAMELLA series is designed for Danish LeKlint by the talented design duo, Takagi & Homstevdt.
Sensuous Nordic light in the Japanese style – a new lamp from Fritz Hansen
Semi-transparent, sculptural and sensuous describes the Dogu™ lamp by the versatile artist Michael Geertsen, whose art is inspired by the correlation between sculpture and functionality. The Dogu lamp is quite similar to Geertsen’s art, with its organic silhouette and smooth surface.
The name “Dogu” is Japanese and refers to the traditional ceramic figures shaped like animals and manlike creatures, and more than 10,000 years old. They had no utility value; however, they had great spiritual and emotional function. In the shape of Geertsen’s modern Dogu lamp, these properties are combined in a useful and aesthetic function. The moulded lampshade is made of bone china, a semi-transparent material made of white clay with bone ash, which gives it a sensuous and light expression. The lamp casts a soft golden light, which follows the Nordic tradition of applying light to bring out acertain mood and atmosphere. The small irregularities of the bone china resemble the natural marks of natural leather, for example, and add life and personality to the material, accentuating the unique diversity of the lamps.
Dogu is curved from the cord to the base – from the bone china lampshade to the aluminium suspension. This suspension has small gaps, which cast the light upwards. The result is a pleasant, soft and diffused light.
Satellite Desk Lamp – a collaboration between rewired and Danish architects Friis & Moltke
Stringent and timeless are the first two words that strike you about this new design from Friis & Moltke architects, created in collaboration with Danish rewired. Specifically, the seamless detail in the switch is worth an extra glance as it is completely integrated within the shade of the lamp.
Mikkel Bahr, Creative Director at Friis & Moltke architects, says about the lamp: ‘We are very happy about the result, which is a lamp of high quality with specific settings and the possibility of dimming the light. The details were very important for us: from the massive screw to the perfect welding and the special coating – these are all elements that in combination with one another create a unique lighting solution.’
