Northern Lighting is honoured to present the winner of the Northern Lighting Student Design Award 2015; ‘Buddy’ by Mads Sætter-Lassen. For the third time Northern Lighting hosted the Northern Lighting Student Design Award which had another successful year, receiving over 120 contributions from design talents representing design schools all over the Nordic countries. This year we invited young, up-and-coming talents to make future design trends come alive by challenging existing lighting innovations, shapes, materials and functions.
The winner, Mads Sætter-Lassen is a Master student at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, The School of Design in Copenhagen. His design ‘Buddy’ is a table lamp with an extra feature. The lighting object has a small functional storage unit that makes it easy to store pens, pencils or scissors on your desktop or in the hall. The shade is flexible and can be rotated in any direction making it a perfect reading light. This powder coated steel lamp has a colour palette in matte green, black, grey, white and coral. The design of the multi-functional ‘Buddy’ is original; it has challenged the existing lighting design standards, shapes and functions with its strong concept and characteristic form. We are very proud to present this lamp as the winner of Northern Lighting Student Award 2015.
