Cathrine Kullberg’s Distinctively Lovely Norwegian Forest Lamps
Kullberg’s Norwegian Forest series of pendant lamps epitomizes the interest mentioned above. Designed in 2007, these stunning lightpieces in ash or birch resemble fine art more than anything as utilitarian as a lamp, yet the combination of beautiful, original wooden etchings and subtle backlighting is expertly synthesized within the two media: “veneer, light, and translucency—combining modern technology and traditional craft techniques into a lamp.”
To create her Norwegian Forest lamps, Kullberg fashions a cylindrical shade of double layered Nordic birch or ash veneer lined with white paper fleece. The forest scene depicted therein is laser cut in the pattern of Kulberg’s original art.
Manufacturer Northern Lighting is re-issuing these iconic lamps this year at the Stockholm Furniture Fair in an international launch that’s certain to propel Kullberg’s lovely lamps far beyond the shores of Scandinavia.
