Normann Copenhagen & Vibeke Fonnesberg Schmidt's
Bau Pendant Lamp
This colorful piece of sculptural lighting can transform a room. How do we know? A large Bau hangs above our dining table at home. (It was so worth the wait, too. Bau was initially slated to be released in 2010, and was finally released in Spring 2012.)
With a nod to the Bauhaus movement, Danish designer Vibeke Fonnesberg Schmidt created this stunning pendant for Normann Copenhagen, combining primary colors and geometry in the manner of De Stijl and Piet Mondrian. The sculptural design is based on interlocking geometric circles, with the pattern broken by disc colors, sizes and off-center linkages. In fact, she softens the rigidness of the geometry with transgressive, imperfect and challenging combinations. Likewise her approach to design.
"Decoration does not need to be restricted to objects you hang on the wall," notes Vibeke, "but can also form an integral part of more functional objects, such as a table or a lamp. I want people to have is to see the Bau lamp and wonder what it looks like from the other side. It must appeal to peoples' sense of curiosity."
