Bau Lamp by Normann Copenhagen
Design by Vibeke Fonnesberg Schmidt, 2010
Bau is one of the most beautiful pendant light fixtures we have ever seen. It looks like a suspended sculptural work of art. Bau is a decorative pendant lamp that suits both minimalistic interiors and more daring modern houses.
Bau is a sculptural pendant lamp designed by the Danish designer Vibeke Fonnesberg Schmidt for Normann Copenhagen. The design is based on interlocking geometric circles, sticking out in all directions. The Bau lamp has an immediate pattern that is broken up by the discs' colours, sizes and off-centre linkages. This lamp combines the primary colours in the manner of De Stijl and Piet Mondrian with geometric circular shapes. A unique and creative design inspired by the Bauhaus movement. This lamp ships flat packed, assembly required.
Vibeke Fonnesberg Schmidt explains: "Decoration does not need to be restricted to objects you hang on the wall, but can also form an integral part of more functional objects, such as a table or a lamp. This creates new and exciting opportunities in furnishing. When you move your position in relation to Bau, the tight geometric lines are broken. The sort of experience I want people to have is to see the Bau lamp and wonder what it looks like from the other side. It must appeal to peoples' sense of curiosity."
The Bau lamp is available in two sizes. 4 meter cord is included. Lightsource: E27, max 60W or 11W low energy bulb (not included). Assembly required.
