Norwegian Forest is a pendant and table lamp series with shade elements made of natural birch or white ash veneer, depicting a pine forest with animals.
The lamp draws on the classic Scandinavian tradition of using thin, translucent veneer strips. The intricate pattern is laser-cut by skilled craftsmen in Sweden.
The shade is made from premier quality, double layered Nordic birch veneer or ash veneer with a white, semi transparent stain on the outside and white paper fleece on the inside. The veneer is put through a flexing process to become bendable and then coated with a clear solvent-free coating. The shade elements are hand sewn onto the white steel frame using natural leather lace. When lit, the blonde veneer offers a warm glow, filtering out light between the carved treetops.
The Norwegian Forest lamp was first presented in 2007 through Cathrine Kullberg Design, and included in the Northern Lighting portfolio in 2013. It should be noted that wood is prone to ‘tanning’ in strong sunlight. It is therefore advised to rotate a lamp exposed to direct sunlight, to acquire an even, all-round tan.
