The Norwegian lighting company Northern Lighting just announced the winner of their Student Design Award 2015; the desk lamp Buddy, designed by Mads Sætter-Lassen, a Master Student at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts.
Buddy is a smart little desk lamp that has a storage unit attached at the base, making it easy to store pens, pencils or scissors. The flexible shade can be rotated in any direction. Buddy is a small and compact lamp, but I still think it has a large personality, and it immediately appealed to me, both designwise and with regards to functionality. I love the graphic and simple shape. The shade and the storage unit balance each other perfectly. Hopefully the lamp will be in production within a year or so.
The steel lamp is powder coated, and the color palette is coral, matte green, black, grey and white. What color would you choose?

If you are not afraid of heights, this is a challenge for you! You can now spend a night at the top of the Holmenkollen Ski Jump in Oslo, if you dare. This is a collaboration between Airbnb and Skiforeningen, and you will be sleeping surrounded only by Norwegian design, selected by Melissa Hegge, who herself is a seasoned Airbnb-host in Oslo, and styled by her and Nina Holst from Stylizimo. Airbnb is a community marketplace where you can book spaces directly from hosts; it can be just a room for the night or a flat or a house for a longer stay.
This is a one-off experience, so it is free, but in order to become one of the chosen few who will get this opportunity, you need to pick a date, and write 100 words about why you deserve the stay. You can find the website and all information regarding the concept here.
There are some house rules though; you cannot try the jump itself, unless you are a professional ski jumper. You can however invite your closest 30 000 friends to join you in the surroundings, but you need to warn your neighbors … and you can only bring one guest to the tower itself. Read more about it here.
So much great Norwegian design to enjoy as well!
E njoy the stunning panoramic view over Oslo ..
