Socket occasional lamp

By Menu


The Socket occasional lamp’s design explores the boundaries between minimalist sculpture and practical everyday objects. A weighty, heavy lamp cast from brass, it fits perfectly on the desk, shelf or a nook in the home that needs to be lit. The inserted socket is easily removed, so that – with or without a bulb – the lamp also functions as a paperweight. The lamp is inspired by Norm Architects’ recent work with geometric jewelry. “In our work, we aim for geometrical purity,” Danish designers duo Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Ronn explain. “We want to arrive at the maximum expressivity with the minimum of expression. It’s not about designing less of product. It’s about soft, streamlined shapes that invite you to touch them.”
