Snap Lamp can easily be snapped onto a variety of surfaces to provide functional light wherever it is needed

Marie Hesseldahl is a young Danish product designer who has a passion for lighting. Marie is always keen to work with functionality, believing that human interaction with products should be intuitive and easy; she aims to give advanced and complex functions a simple and aesthetic appearance.

With Marie’s latest design, Snap Lamp, she created a light targeting modern Scandinavian homes. Her aim was to create a flexible lighting solution which is easy to install and place around the interior. She has designed a lamp in which the clamp function is seamlessly integrated into its shape. In form experiments, Marie attempted to create organic geometry. This resulted in the choppy expression of Snap Lamp, which gives the lamp its personality and character. “It appears to be a little creature sitting and watching” she explains.

Snap Lamp is designed to satisfy multiple needs in the home, such as focal glow in chosen areas, direct and functional work light at the desktop or as a part of the general lighting. The lamp can be snapped onto any surface with a thickness ranging from 8-40 mm. SNAP LAMP has two axes of rotation, offering a versatile lighting solution from any placement. The lamp is made from a wood fiber-plastic composite with a spring steel molded into its shape. The lamp uses energy efficient LED technology and has a dimmer function, which makes it easy to control the intensity of light and mood in a room.

The cable is an extension of Snap Lamp’s third hind ‘leg’ which allow the cable to lie along the surface, eliminating it as a disturbing element in the interior.
