BELL
Normann Copenhagen Thursday 28 Jun 2012


Normann Copenhagen presents Bell, designed by Andreas Lund and Jacob Rudbeck. The expression is robust, the form is simple. Bell is a steel ceiling lamp in an iconic bell shape and with special attention paid to its details. Its round, even surface gives the lamp the impression of having been cast rather than being hidden; the meeting between the lead and the lamp is accentuated in a modern and original way.

With Bell, designers Andreas Lund and Jacob Rudbeck have focused on designing a lamp where the design of the fixtures has space to unfold. The contrast between the materials creates a modern lamp. Bell is a directional lamp that changes character and creates new experiences when a person moves around it. The light inner side reflects the light, which falls like a cone and provides good lighting over the dining table.

Andreas Lund and Jacob Rudbeck explain: “Often, the fixtures, or the part that connects the lead to the lamp, are not the primary aspect of a lamp’s design. They are more of a necessity. In Bell you have a lamp where the connection between the lead and the lamp is evident. Just as light is a gatherer, the bell has historically been used to call people to come together - to gather people. With its bell shape, Bell can also be used to create a cosy place to gather in the room.”

Bell comes in two sizes and two colour combinations, which makes the lamp an ideal light source in various interior spaces. Hang a few Bell lamps in the kitchen, use it over the dining table, or illuminate a large hall or office environment.
