Taking her inspiration form an old workbench commonly used in wood workshops, the young Norwegian designer Caroline Olsson has realised this pair of delicate, pared-down table lamps. Featuring a characteristic swivel screw tightening mechanism which in fact serves as a dimmer, similarly to Olsson’s ‘Skog‘ series,’Turn’ is also made of mouth blown glass and untreated wood but this time around, the designer decided to use birch instead of oak wood.

More about the design:

 

‘Turn light is inspired by the old workbench that is often used in wood workshops in Norway. The three threads are very beautiful, and I wanted to use them in a different setting to make them more accessible to people. You can decide how bright you want it to shine by turning the tightening mechanism. Turn Light is made of birch and mouth blown glass. Still at prototype.’
