Cap Table Lamp

About

Inspired by a Comic

Cap is a functional table lamp with an adjustable shade. The German design duo KaschKasch are the creative minds behind the design of the Cap Lamp. They have drawn their inspiration from the cartoon character Calimero, a charming little chicken with an eggshell on its head. It was this eggshell that gave them the idea for the large, semi-circular lampshade. The rounded shape creates a counterbalance to the stringent, geometric design.

In spite of its simple, almost sculptural shape, the Cap Lamp's design oozes with personality. We immediately fell for the contemporary shape, well thought out function and atmospheric character of Cap. It's precisely these elements that characterise a Normann Copenhagen product," explains Poul Madsen, CEO and co-founder of Normann Copenhagen.

The German design studio KaschKasch was founded by Florian Kallus and Sebastian Schneider in 2011. With a main focus on precise lines, geometric shapes and well thought out details, KaschKasch creates straightforward contemporary designs with a graphical expression. The young design team has already received critical acclaim for their work and has been nominated as “Best Newcomers” at the highly esteemed German Design Award. 

“We want to design relevant products and we always try to get the maximum out of the minimum by breaking every idea down to its essential elements. It’s all about the details. We love the entire design process, from idea to finished product. We work with hand sketching, 3D rendering and 1:1 modelling, which allows us to fine-tune the design until we achieve just the right combination of aesthetics and function.”
