Ljós [ljɔus], which means “light” in Icelandic, is a pendant lamp made for softly lighten any space.
Available in two sizes and shapes, 60 cm or 35 cm long, Ljós is composed of 28 birch plywood laser cut sheets assembled through the joint of two gears in the middle of the supporting structure without any glue or screw. This solution allows Ljós’s lampshade to be fully reversible and gives the user the option to pick between two different lamp layouts.
The wood used for Ljós’s production is locally sourced, being for the majority a leftover material from the Vaia flood which affected Northern Italy in 2018.
The lamp’s concept is inspired by the shadow play created by summer sunsets on the Italian Alps, the area where Bjørne studio is based and aims to convey a mountain-like feeling of calm and restfulness.
