The Fox Light is Organically Composed with Branch-Like Components

Part of the larger lighting series called 'Gren' (meaning 'Branch' in Danish), the Fox Light takes an organic form that seems capable of growing and changing. Designer Gunnar Soren Petersen connects wooden dowels together with joints of porcelain material, which he calls "the logical material choice due to its durability, aesthetics and natural origin."

This abstract representation of a wild dog is brought to life with a pair of illuminating lightbulb ears and a long nose that functions as a subtle switch. The table lamp balances upon three legs, making it obscure yet familiar as an animal form.

What's notable about the Fox Light is that stimulates outside-of-the-box thinking through the use of basic organic materials and minimalist compositions. Especially when observing this piece alongside of the others in the series, the great number of structural possibilities becomes obvious.
