Imagine Maritime gas lamps lighting the way on dark cobblestone streets dating back over a century. Now imagine a modern version that embodies the essence of this icon in a desk lamp crafted in opal glass and oxidised brass - and you have Copenhagen by the design duo at Space Copenhagen. The compact size allows you to place the lamp in all kinds of settings and the swivel feature gives you more possibilities for illumination. Light intensity is seamlessly controlled through a new dim-feature reflecting the latest Nobel Prize findings about our inner clock and the benefits of proper lighting on our wellbeing. Turn the knob on the base of the lamp from a colder brighter white light for daytime to a warmer white light for a cosy effect. A customised, built-in LED module ensures energy efficiency. Ideal for any sized desk, the Copenhagen desk lamp will pave the path for pondering great ideas.
Established in 2005 by Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou, Space Copenhagen is a design studio working across multiple disciplines from furniture, lighting and refined objects, to art installations, art direction and interior design for private homes, hotels and restaurants all over the world.
The ambition is to forge new paths by balancing opposites — classic and modern, industrial and organic, sculptural and minimal, light and shade. Duality and contrast. Curiosity as a fundamental human condition.
The studio’s intuitive approach embodies designs that are distinctively shaped by the given circumstances, functional needs, and a fundamental interest in human behavior. It is a sense of and belief in slow aesthetic that centers quality and longevity.
Space Copenhagen has created lauded furniture pieces for some of the world’s leading manufacturers and continuously substantiates their roster of high-end interiors at an international level, following, among others, their award-winning design for 11 Howard hotel in New York and acclaimed destination restaurants Geranium and Noma in Copenhagen.
