A beautiful lamp with a graphic, rounded silhouette, inspired by Copenhagen’s iconic street lighting, the Normann Copenhagen Grant Table Lamp adds a touch of character and style to your space. Consisting of an igneous stone base, a pedestal to its polished metal structure, the innovative lampshade tilts up and down, enabling the user to direct the light whilst adjusting the luminosity via the cord’s dimmer switch. Its compact, versatile profile is ideally utilised upon a bedside table, side table or workspace.

“Honesty is what makes a product understandable, and is what describes functionality of the products. If you understand the product, it doesn’t need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological- and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects, and makes them trustworthy. In my designs I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
