There is something so northern, and well, Canadian, about these Norwegian lights. They are made of thin birch strip veneer mounted on white paper, and held together with natural leather lacing. The motif is a forest, with pine trees and eagles and wolves laser cut into the wood. When the light shines through, it almost looks like snow. The lights are produced and hand assembled by a group of local artisans in Oslo so they maintain a personal quirky character.
They look wonderful in groups of two and three or could stand alone. The other model has a base that is made of steel, and wound with natural leather.and could sit on a table. Are they craft or are they design? They are at the London Design Festival and apparently the biggest fans are Canadians who are drawn to the lights like homesick moths. :: Cathrine Kullberg Lighting Via :: London Design Festival
