flow, a desk lamp designed by andreas kowalewski for normann copenhagen

 

amsterdam-based designer andreas kowalewski experiments with materials, construction principles and innovating technologies in his work. he commits to create useful design solutions which have meaning, reduce complexity and have a well-balanced form language. the ‘flow lamp’ for normann copenhagen is a modular LED table lamp with a very flexible positioning and a minimal and flowing design—hence its name. just like branches on a tree, all of the lamp’s parts grown seamlessly into each other.

the ‘flow lamp’ by andreas kowalewski is composed of an architecture that is physically and also visually vert light and fluid. constructed in aluminium, its simplicity allows for easy assemblage and disassemble of all its parts, resulting in an uncomplicated flat package that can be easily shipped. a touch-sensitive copper switch has been incorporated allowing the user to adjust the light to three different intensities while its position can be adjusted to suit a myriad of activities. the original idea for the lamp arose out of a series of drawings, exploring the possibilities of a multi-directional table lamp that can be easily transported.
