Norwegian designer Kristine Five Melvær has designed a series of lamps that look like buds about to burst into bloom.
The Bloom lamps comprise canvas covers dyed in graduated hues and supported by a steel frame, suspended from the end of a bent metal tube like a drooping flower stem.
"Like big drops, the shades may be associated with buds, fruits or water, while the seams in the construction are reminiscent of fibers. The steel structures have different heights, which contribute to the association of organic bodies," says Kristine Five Melvær.
The project will be on show at ™51 gallery in Oslo from tomorrow until Sunday for an exhibition of work by Norwegian designers, called Tingenes Tilstand (The State of Things).
We met Kristine Five Melvær at Stockholm Furniture Fair in February, where she presented a series of jars with lights inside for showcasing treasured possessions.
