The Norm 12, named after the year 2012 when the lamp was designed, is a self assembly lampshade with a round and welcoming feel. It spreads a mild and diffused anti-glare light, which is dispersed through the lampshade's rounded silhouette.
The Norm 12 is available in two sizes, which are finished in pure and simple matt white, and fits in well with most homes and tastes in styles. The large version is perfect for hallways or in the bedroom while the small lampshade emits a comfortable light for the dining room table.
Norm 12 can be cleaned with a duster or by using the shower head in the shower. The lampshade is made of a special, non flammable plastic material.
The 67 pieces are easily assembled with the manual included without any use of tools or glue. Socket, cord and hook are not included.

“Whenever I get an idea I draw a sketch which is then transformed into a model. The model is then adjusted over a period of time until the final prototype can be done. I dream of developing new ways of designing furniture and larger objects through the self-assembly concept. This concept must be able to work on a larger scale and that thought fascinates me.”
