Big personalities are said to light up a room, while timid individuals typically shy away from the spotlight.
This attractive, but unassuming, wall lamp has both of those characteristics, and many others too. The lamp is shaped by subtle contours and designed with discreet details. The black version blends seamlessly into the background, while the pink version creates an eye-catching feature. The soft, flexible arm moves effortlessly, making it easy to angle the shade and brighten a particular area. Alternatively, the shade can be lowered and light levels toned down, just as if the lamp is blushing in the face of attention. Whether chosen for its understated details or statement-making potential, Blush can change moods at the flip of a switch.
Known eponymously as Morten & Jonas, Norwegian designers Morten Skjærpe Knarrum and Jonas Norheim need no further introduction. They established their studio in Bergen, Norway after receiving masters degrees from the Bergen Academy of Art and Design.
The designers create cutting-edge products, furniture and interior architecture marked by curiosity, imagination and humour. Morten & Jonas’s point of difference is being able to add design to social agendas, famously enlisting the help of incarcerated men and women to manufacturer their Bake Me a Cake table lamp in 2013.
Since then, Morten & Jonas have produced a second and third design for Northern Lighting – the multi-functional Say My Name lamp and Me floor lamp – as well as earning several awards and having their work exhibited internationally.
