Model: Shelter Table Lamp
Design by HolmbäckNordentoft
Shelter is a simple, characterful table lamp that emits a cosy light onto its surroundings. The conical shape of its base and the rounded shade provide a soft and friendly feel adding a delightful contrast to the clean and sharp lines of the lamp. Shelter was designed by the Danish design duo HolmbäckNordentoft.
Shelter is a play on both proportions and details. The white inner side of the shade provides a reflective effect while its wide, curved shape goes to direct the light, making it pleasant and anti-dazzling.
HolmbäckNordentoft say: ”The idea came from speculating about how one could create a visual connection between the cord and the lamp. A cord is a necessary evil. How could we make a necessity into a virtue? That's when we got the idea for the curved opening at the bottom of the lamp and the brass detail, which became a main feature of the overall feel of the Shelter.”
Shelter is available in a classic black, white, or a limestone grey. The lamp creates a cosy lighting atmosphere in the corner of the living room or when placed next to an armchair or sofa. Shelter is also well-suited as a reading lamp in the office or in the bedroom.
