Norm03 light by Britt Kornum for Normann Copenhagen

June 17th, 2011 by retail design blog

Originally, the architecture student Britt Kornum created the Norm03 light for her personal use above her dining table. But when more and more friends advised her to make this idea accessible for the public, she contacted the Danish company Normann Copenhagen.

The Norm03 light impresses by its organic and vivid shape. Two lamp film strips wind into and around one another like a snake and thus enforce the impression of a well-organised chaos. If turned on, the Norm03 light projects sculptural effects onto the wall and onto the ceiling. The Norm03 consists of 39 parts that you have to assemble by yourself. For that you need neither tools nor adhesive and the tinkering process makes the light very personal and special. The Norm03 light consists of lamp film strips and is available either in small (53 cm x 32 cm) or in large (65 cm x 40 cm).

Design: Britt Kornum
Britt Kornum studied at the University for Architecture and Furniture Design in Aarhus, Denmark and created the Norm03 light as work for her architecture study. Nowadays, it is sold successfully all over the world.

In 2003 the Norm03 light by Normann Copenhagen was awarded the Formland Prize; moreover, it got the title “Best Item” at the IMM in Cologne in 2004.
The Formland Prize is one of the most treasured distinctions in Denmark and is only given to products of Scandinavian producers. The Formland Prize is the award of the biggest trade fair for applied arts and design in Scandinavia.
