21.10.2014: Hot off the press! The new VIA Lamp with changeable lamp shade - designed by Mencke & Vagnby from ShapingYourDay.com.
The lamp is not only “another lamp”, but a new concept combining flexibility, glare free light and timeless shapes. You can choose V: for uplight, I: provides up and downlight and A: provides manly downlight - VIA!
For all three settings the light is also reflected horizontally through the white powder-coated aluminum leafs, with a matt inside coating. The shiny outside coating reflects the light out into the room.
The project is being crowd funded through Kickstarter, the crowd funding platform reaching out to Danish entrepreneurs today.
"Kickstarter is a great way to get a first hand impression and interaction with the end user, before producing a product. One of the future ways of realizing designs for small brands like ShapingYourDay.com", says Marcus Vagnby, one of the designers. "All parts are “clean” parts, neither glue or over moulds are used, so all parts can be taken apart and recycled in the best possible way! We mark parts with a material code to improve recycling. We flat pack the lamps, which means less material is used in the recycled cardboard packaging and less CO2 due to less air transported: We can send five lamps instead of one, it´s that much space we save, compared to a fully assembled lamp!”, he says.
In addition, ShapingYourDay believe in a lamp that can change its looks and adapt its function to the users needs. “For sure it has a longer lifetime, and hopefully you don´t get tired of it at any time!”, says Marcus Vagnby.

Danish-based company Naked Society is a transparent design company that focuses on interior design, created from the idea that an aesthetic should be a melting pot of equal amounts Scandinavian purity and colorful Africa. Naked Society’s design perspective lifts recycled materials into the food chain of the products. The idea of recycling raw materials came from one of their numerous travels to Africa, where they experienced the surplus stocks of Western textiles firsthand. Production is based in Denmark and Africa. Spotted by missdesignsays. Content Curator #allgoodthingsdanish

The Scandinavian design brand MOEBE is based in Copenhagen - founded by cabinetmaker Anders Thams and architect Martin D. Christensen. I came across Martin, when I first met Nordic Tales and saw their table POET (designed by Martin - see the post about the table here). So I’ve been watching Martin, and now MOEBE, ever since.
Take a look at their design and tell me if you too like the way they “push our proud scandinavian design traditions on towards new discoveries”.
