2. &Tradition: Flowerpot VP9 table lamp
The Flowerpot VP9 table lamp is a fresh and charming splash of color – and what's best, it can also be carried outdoors!

3. GUBI: Semi pendant
Looking for the perfect pendant? GUBI's matte white Semi luminaire is stylish, but by no means boring: due to its playful, trumpet-shaped silhouette, the light spreads beautifully around the room. Designed by the designer duo Bonderup & Thorup, the unique Semi fits any space but is like made over a dining group or a counter.
4. Tala: The Muse portable lamp
Portable lamps create a glowy atmosphere for the long summer evenings. Tala's cordless The Muse table lamp is the perfect companion for both a small balcony and summer cottage, where it effortlessly illuminates even the darkest corner without electricity. In terms of aesthetics, The Muse resembles a classic lantern spiced up with modern features. Made of borosilicate glass, aluminum, and brass, the portable lamp has a rotating dimmer to switch the mood effortlessly.
5. Warm Nordic: Lightsome floor lamp
A floor lamp acts as a real multitasker that complements the ceiling lamp and creates more balanced and atmospheric lighting in the room. Designed by Svend Aage Holm-Sørensen in the 1950s, the Lightsome is part of Warm Nordic's re-released collection of Danish design classics. Consisting of a perforated metallic shade and a sleek stem, the Lightsome is suitable as a pleasant reading light or a stunning detail of a living room.
6. New Works: Kizu portable table lamp
Lars Tornøe's Kizu table lamp is a favorite of many, and no wonder – it combines geometrical shapes and charming materials in an impressive way. The lamp is created by a hemisphere-shaped diffuser that seems to be balancing upside down on a rounded marble base. The portable version features a convenient dimmer that works by tapping the small metal circle on the top.
7. HAY: Nelson Cigar Bubble pendant
HAY's Nelson Cigar Bubble pendant is a more luxurious alternative to the traditional rice paper lamp. In addition to a soft and inviting light, the pendant gives the room a real dose of personality. Designed by George Nelson, the rounded silhouette of the pendant is created by spraying a translucent plastic polymer over a steel-wire frame.
