The origin of Sverre Uhnger’s ‘Oo’ table lamp design was the Norwegian designer’s fascination with lathed wooden spheres “and how the same shape in different sizes relates to each other.”
“Imagine the base and the shade as parts of wooden spheres; the part that is cut off from the shade is used as base only with a bigger diameter.” says Uhnger. Befittingly, the lamp’s name, Oo, comes from these two spheres, a big and a small circle.
Oo is made of solid wood mounted with a custom switch and a high power 5-watt LED. The arm moves freely through the stem, which makes it possible to adjust the shade in height and angle. Oo was shown at the State of Things exhibition at the 2013 Stockholm Furniture Fair.
