Danish lighting powerhouse, Lightyears, is pleased to present three new lighting designs: Suspence + Suspence Nomad by GamFratesi and Night Owl by Nikolai Wiig Hansen.  Showcasing Lightyears’ trademark approach to robust materials, functionality and minimalism; each new design sits seamlessly alongside Lightyears’ unique collection of lighting. 

SUSPENCE  // Designed by GamFratesi, Suspence is organic with a natural soft curve. The shape of the lamp has been created by pulling – this tensile force is visible at the top of the lamp, where you see the little tip. Suspence is designed with a monochrome look; the shade and cord are perceived as an uninterrupted whole. An infinity diffuser at the bottom of the lamp concentrates the light, prevents glare and contributes to creating an elegant optical illusion.


SUSPENCE NOMAD // Suspence Nomad is GamFratesi challenging conventional thinking in the area of lamp use. Nomad is designed to be placed on a horizontal surface e.g. a floor, staircase or terrace. It carries an appeal to be moved from place to place, without a permanent residence – just like a nomad. The lamp is easily moved by lifting the silicone handle at the top. Nomad is made of polyethylene, which is a tough material that gives off a soft, diffuse light – creating a cosy atmosphere.


NIGHT OWL // Nikolai Wiig Hansen’s inspiration for designing the Night Owl table lamp was the desire to create a warm and cosy wash of light. The design is effortless; it is an informal table lamp. It consists of a conical base and oval shade, merging together to form a single unit of balanced proportions. Its organic design gives the lamp a friendly and almost human appearance – it’s a lamp with a personality! The names of the colours are inspired by nature: midnight blue after the infinity blue tone of the sky at twilight; and smokey white after the glowing light of a full moon. Night Owl casts a warm and pleasant downward light. The texture of the natural ash base gives the lamp character, and over time the wood will develop a patina of its own. The shade is fi nished at the bottom by a diffuser which softens the light, as well as preventing glare. The asymmetric shade provides an oval diffusion of the light. The shade can be placed in four different positions, allowing the black cable to exit the lamp in the desired direction. Night Owl is suitable for standing on e.g. a sideboard, shelf, bedside table or in a window.
