Inspired by the leaves on a tree, the LEAF lamp series creates an iconic silhouette depending on the positioning of the lamp's shade and viewing angle. LEAF is available in two sizes and uses energy-efficient LED technology. The lamps dim function makes it possible to control both light and mood and it is a stylish addition to any room, whether in the home, office or other commercial setting. “Leaf successfully combines a light and elegant design with an energy-efficient LED technology. Though the design is minimalistic and straightforward, a soft asymmetric geometry gives the lamp an organic and friendly appearance. - Depending on the viewing angle and how the shade is turned, the lamp will subtly transform its shape to create a graphic and leaf-like silhouette in the room.”

BROBERG & RIDDERSTRÅLE ON THEIR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
“Inspiration is the first and most important key you are looking for when designing a new object. Without this first hand vision the designer is often lost in shapes and forms that lack soul and meaning. However, the source of inspiration and how you use it is never certain. This is the beauty of design to us. Never knowing when or where your next project will begin. You just have to keep your eyes open.”
BROBERG & RIDDERSTRÅLE ON NEW NORDIC DESIGN
“In content I would say that Scandinavian design is still very honest and clear and in that sense true to its heritage. But since we are living in a global society with its pros and cons, I think it would be rash to argue that the Nordic countries have a unified design approach. New Nordic, to us, is more of a ongoing progressive search for new answers and solutions regarding our daily life rather than a definition of style and tradition.”
