Diva is a set of wood laminated floor and pendant light sculptures produced by the Norwegian manufacturer Northern Lighting.
By making a contemporary light object the two young designers, Thomas Kalvatn Egset and Peter Natedal, wanted to pay their respect to the proud Norwegian heritage of wood lamination craftsmanship, and at the same time challenge or reinvent how this material can be used.
The lamp’s outer frame consists of a set of thirty two gently curving walnut or oak laminated plywood slices set around two wooden cylinders. The inner parts consist of a slim metal stem supporting a solid mouth–blown frosted glass globe. The floor lamp’s outer frame can be turned in two directions, creating two different sculptures.
