Northern Light’s Diva Pendant Lamp Evokes the Golden Age of Scandinavian Design

Now that said “Golden Age” has ever come to an end, but designers Natedal and Egset have a professed a definitive objective of “paying their respect to the proud Norwegian heritage of wood lamination craftsmanship, and at the same time challenging or reinventing how this material can be used.”

The unique shape of Diva is achieved through a rather simple trick: 32 subtly-bent laminated strips are set one just below the next, thereby achieving a dynamic and fluid aesthetic that’s palpably feminine and beautifully strange.

That last descriptor is nothing but complimentary, as “strange,” in the best sense, implies unprecedented artistic achievement—the kind of formal innovation that shocks us from complacency and into an appreciation of something heretofore unseen.

About the Manufacturer: Oslo’s Northern Lighting has tapped into the singular atmospheric quality of Scandinavia’s rarefied latitudes to create a lighting line “inspired by the unique Nordic nature, culture and society and the very special natural light.” Peopled by “fiery souls who are fascinated by the mood-creating possibilities of light,” Northern Lighting offers a diverse and distinctive collection, including work by the iconic interior architect Gerhard Berg and the accomplished artist Anu Moser.
