Founded in Oslo in 2005, the Norwegian brand Northern Lighting
has transformed lighting into a variety of poetic experiences. The collection is made up of eclectic lighting, all of which reflects the Scandinavian culture in one way or another. Their designers draw their inspiration from the Nordic countryside, from the wonderful light which is particular to their superb landscape and from Scandinavian culture and society. Handcrafted in the little Norwegian village of Dokka, the oak lamp called Diva celebrates the Norwegian tradition of using plywood. The Oslo Wood standard lamp
imitates the evening light in the forests surrounding the town of Oslo. The lamp in the shape of a glass cake dome called "Bake me a Cake"
is a solid object made by the inmates of a prison close to Bergen in Norway. The wall light "Moo"
pays homage to the 'King of the Norwegian forest', the reindeer, in a reinterpretation of the traditional hunting trophy.
also continues the Scandinavian tradition of re-inventing Nordic design icons from the 60s like the famous Butterfly wall light
designed in 1964 by Norwegian designer Sven Ivar Dysthe
, or the Birdy lamps
designed in 1952 by Norwegian Birger Dahl
, considered one of the most important post-war Scandinavian interior designers.
