Long Live the Norm
Norm 06 is a decorative lamp shade with personality and character that fits our design universe in a perfect way.
Simon Karkov explains: "I have worked on Norm 06 for the last 3-4 years and just like many of my other projects; I had to leave my idea for a while and look at it again a couple of months later. The design is inspired by nature, by the lilies and the water lilies. Norm 06 nicely follows the Danish design tradition for lamp shades with its shielding of the bulb and the soft light."
Design: Simon Karkov
Simon Karkov graduated in architecture from The Danish Academy of Architecture. Since the sixties he has been working for several architecture offices in Denmark. The past 10 years he mainly worked for the Municipality of Frederiksberg. During this period he left his mark on several projects, for example Frederiksberg Hospital and Frederiksberg Gymnasium. Today Simon is enjoying his retirement in Turkey working on different projects.
“Whenever I get an idea I draw a sketch which is then transformed into a model. The model is then adjusted over a period of time until the final prototype can be done. I dream of developing new ways of designing furniture and larger objects through the self-assembly concept. This concept must be able to work on a larger scale and that thought fascinates me.”
