Nordic Simplicity
Star light, with its clear forms and vibrant shadow play have a simplistic Nordic look. The lamp consists of 50 pieces of acrylic in four different geometric shapes. The simple shapes form, when assembled, the shape of a star. The bulb is enclosed in the lamp shade and the mirror on the inside of the lamp causes the light to reflect off between the white and transparent acrylic.

The expression of Star changes constantly and creates new reflections depending on the time of day and how the light falls. The reflections bring the lamp to life and make it dynamic to look at. The Star lamp distributes a sculptural and beautiful light, which makes it ideal above the dining table and in halls, and it gives the interior decoration a contemporary and Nordic twist.

Integrated design
The idea with the design was to make a lamp that can be assembled without using any glue. The production method of using flat acrylic material and the lamps geometry mean that the 50 acrylic pieces interlock when fully assembled. All pieces intersect at 90 degree angles meaning that flat plates can be used in the manufacturing while the shape allows for this intersection to form an interlocking system.

Noma lab
The Star lamp was put into small-scale production for GXNs interior for Nomas Food Laboratory expressing the projects focus on Nordic identity and playfulness. The lamp was produced in a limited run of 15 individually numbered unique prototypes.

Norman Copenhagen
GXN have collaborated with Norman Copenhagen on maturing the Star lamp for commercial mass production. Norman Copenhagen is expecting the star lamp to be in shops spring 2013 with a 2.800 DKK price tag on it. The star lamp is available for purchase in shops and though Norman Copenhagen’s webshop.
