- Normann Copenhagen presents Petal
Petal is a calm and simply designed table lamp by the Swiss designer Jörg Boner. The idea was to design a table lamp made of metal with the light bulb hidden. At the same time the lamp takes advantage of the reflections of light to create a cosy atmosphere of comfortable lighting. The table lamp is available in a discrete shade light shade of light grey, which supports the room’s décor without disturbing its balance.
The lamp was originally designed as a 75th anniversary gift to the clients of a Swiss company producing metal fittings and lamps. The task involved the selection of sheet metal for the material and utilising the company's production expertise in the design. The particular choice of material is elementary for the shape of the design. The lamp stood hidden away for one year on a shelf in Jörg Boners design studio. It was when he contacted Normann Copenhagen that the lamp was first put into production.
Jörg Boner says: "Petal was designed as a present. The reference point for the final mode of expression is in the choice of material. Light cannot shine through sheet metal, as it isn't transparent. Instead I utilized the reflection of light on the material for the design. I wanted a table lamp that would emit the optimal amount of light by using the minimal amount of material."
The name Petal was found via a name giving competition on Normann Copenhagen’s social media platforms in June 2012. Within four days Normann Copenhagen received over 300 suggestions on facebook (www.facebook.com/normanncopenhagenfan), Normann Copenhagen’s own blog (www.spottedbynormanncopenhagen.com), Twitter (NormannCPH) and via e-mail. The name Petal won as it adds a feminine reference to a lamp made of a hard material. At the same time the name emphasises the shape of the lamp, in that it resembles a flower, as well as the lamps light and airy colors.
