At first glance, the Bau Lamp looks more like an artistic piece, but it is indeed a lighting fixture.
The Bau Lamp was designed by Vibeke F. Schmidt for Normann Copenhagen. The piece is an assembly of interlocking circular plywood carefully placed in an artistic manner. The naturalness of the wood and the brightly painted colors serves as a nice contrast that's pleasing to the eye. The bulb is well hidden in the center so that the design of the lamp itself becomes the focus in the room. There's also a model in a natural finish, which brings a different, but equally impressive effect in the room when lit.
Whether it's colored or not, the Bau Lamp is a piece fit for the modern home.
