We are very excited to share that our popular Glossy table lamp designed by Danish designer Maria Berntsen has won a Red Dot Design Award 2021.
The Red Dot Design Award is a prestigious award given for outstanding design and quality. Only products, projects and concepts that stand out with their exceptional design are awarded this coveted seal of quality by an international jury.
A close and flourishing collaboration with designer Maria Berntsen has resulted in a Red Dot Design Award for Design For The People for the fifth consecutive year. Glossy is honoured with the prestigious award for outstanding design and quality in the category “Lighting Design”.
”Glossy is my favourite lamp. I feel that it successfully balances form and a mix of materials. The entire construction and expression of the lamp is simple and timeless. It makes me proud and incredibly happy that the design has been acknowledged with a Red Dot Award”
Originally Glossy was thought to be a smaller, portable lamp, but since evolved through the creative design process into an exclusive table lamp carried out in a material mix of marble, opal white glass and elegant brass details. The combination of materials is perfectly matched, but at the same time creates interesting contrasts. The almost suspended glass shade is elegantly contrasted by the heavy marble base, both beautifully intertwined by the brushed brass details.
A pleasant, softened light shines through the lightweight shade – and the shiny surface maintains its’ special glow, even when the light is turned off.
“Designer Maria Berntsen is eminent at creating appealing and easily recognisable shapes. This also applies to Glossy – a crescent shade combined with a conical base. Both shapes that we all know and recognise as aesthetically pleasing to the eye”
Beautiful design in a good quality must be obtainable for everyone. In brief, this is the essence of the Nordlux vision – Design For The People. It has been developed over the last years and has led to a rapidly growing number of design wonders for the home – developed in a close co-operation with acclaimed Danish designers.
“The Red Dot is an amazing accolade and one we are very proud to receive for the Glossy table lamp. As a company we are driven to design high quality, outstanding and affordable products in a timeless design. This is a huge recognition for us and the designer.“
