The 'Illusion' lamp is an object created in collaboration between Sweden/Norway based studio Hareide Design and brand Northern Lights. It is a lamp that hovers above the ground, challenging perceptions of gravity and offering the element of surprise.

The 'Illusion' lamp is suspended from the ceiling and it is anchored to the floor by weight. This aluminum lamp can also be transformed into a table when necessary, making it super versatile.
