A student at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, Sætter-Lassen describes Buddy as ‘the little helper everyone needs’. This unassuming desk lamp is just that, a multi-functional design that gives busy individuals a base to come back to. Equipped with a holder to contain pens, pencils, keys or loose change, Buddy lends a hand when you need help keeping track of essentials.

As Buddy organises small items, it helps surfaces remain uncluttered and keeps important objects within reach. The multi-directional shade enables the beam to be directed towards the area where light is needed.

Available in matt finishes of dark grey, off-white, green and marsala, Buddy suits a variety of interiors and applications. Wherever you place it, Buddy promises to be a fun and quirky companion you’ll enjoy getting acquainted with.


Mads Sætter-Lassen

Mads Sætter-Lassen belongs to a new generation of Danish designers. A graduate of the prestigious School of Design at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, Sætter-Lassen also studied at Rhode Island School of Design and the Pratt Institute in New York. Having completed a range of studies within different fields of design, Sætter-Lassen has a uniquely cross-disciplinary approach that fuses elements of interior design with principles of cabinet-making, metalware and ergonomics.

An advocate of democratic design, Sætter-Lassen focuses on simplicity and functionality, preferring to showcase the beauty and integrity of materials rather than embellish products unnecessarily. Buddy is a striking reflection of Sætter-Lassen’s approach, and his first product for Northern Lighting.


Imagine a creative force led by original ideas, in a place where traditional design seems like a thing of the past.
