Stockholm 2016 – Norwegian brand Northern Lighting launches three new designs that look back and ahead at the same time: Birdy pays homage to Birger Dahl design master. Buddy respects the Nordic ergonomic imprint, while Granny blinks at the most humble light source ever: the candle.
Timeless character and challenging attitude. Award-winning designer Birger Dahl originally designed Birdy in 1952 in response to modernist architecture. The new limited edition comes in matt-finish Marsala developed by Pantone. The quite inquisitive table version is available also as a wall and floor lamp.
Granny lights up the interior the old-fashioned way. Instead of flipping the power switch, strike a match and watch as cosy candlelight spreads over the room. A contemporary take on the classic candlestick, Granny is designed with modern-day innovations that heighten its appeal.
The base’s edges rise upwards to catch and contain melted wax before it drips onto the surrounding surface. The holder is made with a sliding brass knob that makes it easier to remove leftover wax and place a new candle inside.
Crafted in steel and brass and made in two heights, Granny is available in matt black or matt white. The design combines a simple and humble object with contemporary design, “a striking design that hopefully will be enjoyed for generations to come” say at Northern Lighting.

Copenhagen Royal Danish Academy student, Søren Sætter-Lassen designed Buddy, a friendly lamp as ‘the little helper everyone needs’. This unassuming desk lamp is just that, a multi-functional design that gives busy individuals a base to come back to. Equipped with a holder to contain pens, pencils, keys or loose change, Buddy lends a hand when you need help keeping track of essentials.
Available in matt finishes of dark grey, off-white, green and Marsala, Buddy suits a variety of interiors and applications. “Wherever you place it, Buddy promises to be a fun and quirky companion you’ll enjoy getting acquainted with” say at Northern Lighting.
