The Local lamp has grown out of the mood in simple bars and relaxed restaurants, where pools of light beneath suspended lampshades create atmospheric social spots. With this ambience as his point of departure, designer Jonas Wagell has created an understated and harmonious pendant lamp as a frame for social get-togethers.
Local consists of a suspended spun steel shade with a simple and welcoming silhouette. Spun lampshades traditionally have a metal fold at the edge to reinforce their shape. In Local, this component is highlighted to become the main character of the design. Instead of the traditional fold, the rim at the edge is enlarged and integrated into the turned shape, so that it appears as a fine detail.
The lamp is intended for both domestic and public environments and can be used either on its own or spread over a larger space. Its expression is calm and subtle, so the lamps can be multiplied without dominating the interior. With its friendly design, Local will contribute to creating a cosy and comfortable ambience.
Local is made of powder coated steel and available in white, grey, black and elm green.
