stocking stuffers: norwegian forests on a string

Here’s a Christmas ornament idea from Norwegian lighting designer Cathrine Kullberg who is known for her range of birch veneer lamps.

Taking off from the success of the Norwegian Forest lamps (which was also featured at the Wallpaper* Guest Editors Karl Lagerfeld/Philippe Starck issue, September 2009) which draw on a classic Scandinavian tradition of using thin birch strips for lighting, Kullberg releases a miniature lamp shade that is perfect as a delicate Christmas ornament for your tree.

Illuminated from the inside, the lamp gives a warm glow as an expertly laser cut motif of a squirrel and pine branches light up. A new design will be launched every winter, so I better start collecting. It’s also perfect as a Christmas gift and each comes flat-packed with easy assembly instructions. A leather string is included for the seam and handle. DIY fun!

NOK 299, available from the following online stores and shops.
