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?
