The Shelter Lamp Has an Umbrella-Esque Top for Brilliant Distribution

You might be inclined to guess that a certain sort of edible fungus was the inspiration for the Shelter Lamp, yet the consideration that influenced its earlier stages of development was actually something quite unexpected. The problem of how to transition between the stand and the electrical cord was perhaps the top priority for HolmbäckNordentoft.

A little upturned lip was integrated into the bases of the table and floor lamps, letting the cable escape. This small curl in the material was repeated throughout the piece, determining the curvacious shapes of the Normann Copenhagen product. The bold, black body of the Shelter Lamp features a cinch at the neck and an elegant mushroom cap lampshade. Its white underside reflects rays out at a wide angle to bathe the entire space in light.
