Cloche Lamp by Lars Beller Fjetland

London Design Festival 2013: the shade of this lamp by Norwegian designer Lars Beller Fjetland resembles a dining cloche lifted up in the air.

Lars Beller Fjetland's Cloche Lamp comprises a cast iron base with a bent ash arm slotted into it and a copper or brass-coloured shade hanging from the other end.

The three components simply slot together so they can easily be taken apart for storage or transport.

Cloche Lamp by Lars Beller Fjetland for 100% Norway at Tent London

Echoing an era of sophistication and grace, Lars Beller’s Cloche lamp curiously explores beauty, weight and balance, seeking inspiration in some of nature’s most elegant and remarkable solutions.

In an effort to set free the graceful, organic flow of form, the Cloche lamp represents an unexpected poetry; one that can only arise from an exploration of the improbable. Unexpected combinations of size, shape and material gain from each other, each part lending its strengths to the other to create a beautifully balanced whole.

Like a bluebell flower, the lamp is firmly grounded by its cast iron roots, while gently leaning its large and seductive spun copper petals towards the light; all made possible by the flexibility of its lightweight ash wood stem. The «Cloche» lamp rediscovers the inherent qualities the materials represent, while gracefully elevating their beauty.

Keeping with designer Lars Beller’s philosophy of honesty in materials and construction, the entire lamp can easily be dissembled into just three separate pieces.
