The new “New Nordic”
by Uta Abendroth | 8/17/2018
Young Scandinavian labels and their designers are riding the wave of continuing success. But why is it that Neo-Scandinavianism is such a hit?
The characteristic Orient™ pendant in brushed aluminium is an elegant addition to the existing series of warm and dark colours, also paying tribute to the original collection which included a black, copper and silver coloured version. The silver-coloured aluminium Orient has a personality of its own, reflecting both Nordic design and the exotic at the same time. Re-launched by Lightyears in 2013 and originally designed by Jo Hammerborg in 1963, the Orient is named after its beautiful, oriental shape. A suspension in Scandinavian oak combined with a grey blue textile cord, truly underlines the Nordic appearance and the cool, brushed aluminium makes the entire design appear light and almost to levitate.
The Orient pendant is a flawless light design with great luminous efficacy and made from the finest quality materials. The fitting elegantly conceals the low energy light source and ensures a soft, pleasant light without any glare. The Orient lamp shade is hand-spun in a wooden mould, a feature that underlines the original, organic shape and true craftsmanship of this pendant.
