‘Oo’ desk lamp by Sverre Uhnger

February 20, 2013

Oslo-based designer Sverre Uhnger has created the ‘Oo’ desk lamp.


Description from Sverre Uhnger

The starting point for the design was my fascination with lathed wooden balls and how the same shape in different sizes relates to each other. Imagine the base and the shade as parts of wooden spheres; the part that is cut off from the shade is used as base only with a bigger diameter. The name Oo comes from these two spheres, a small and a big circle.

Oo is a desk lamp made of solid wood mounted with a custom switch and a high power 5 watt LED. The arm moves freely through the stem, which makes it possible to adjust the shade in height and angle.
