Diva Lamps by Thomas Egset and Peter Natedal

July 14, 2009

Norwegian designers Thomas Egset and Peter Natedal have created the Diva lamps for the Oslo, Norway based manufacturer Northern Lighting.

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 lamps will officially be launched at the 100% Norway show, which is held in September during the 100% Design show in London.
