Normann Copenhagen presents a functional table lamp with “Cap”, whose playful design has a deeper purpose than maybe initially expected.
The German design duo KaschKasch is responsible for the design of the Normann Copenhagen Cap table lamp. The team was inspired by the animated figure Calimero, which is a chicken that has an eggshell on its head. Just that eggshell was the encourager of the idea of the big round lampshade of Cap. The round shape is like a counterweight to the strict geometric design.
Reading and ambience light
The shade of the Cap table lamp is rotatable and inclinable in order to offer the right light for every situation. According to the demands of the user, the table lamp can serve as table lamp with direct light for the readers amongst us or it encourages a moody ambience with indirect light.
Poul Madsen, co-founder of Normann Copenhagen explained about the Cap table lamp: ”Despite of the simple and sculptural shape of Cap, the design is full of personality. The modern shape of Cap, the clever functions and the expressive character – it was love at first sight for us.”
