It is not often you see a light fixture like the Tint Lamp. Instead of a typical lampshade or an untouched glass cover, the Tint Lamp boasts a modern stained glass detail that gives it a unique and sophisticated overall look.

Created by London-based Norwegian designer Magnus Pettersen, the Tint Lamp also pairs two unlikely materials together: glass and concrete. the fragile nature of one beautifully balances the sturdy presence of the other, creating a harmony between the two that is completely feng shui.

According to Pettersen, by "using black concrete and a warm coloured glass, [it] transforms the hard materials into an object which suits an interior environment." Debuting during the 100% Norway exhibition, the Tint Lamp will definitely steal the show. Stats for Stained Shade Lighting Trending: Older & Chilly
