Design House Stockholm Cord Lamp
Wires and unruly lamp cords tend to mess up even the most well-planned decor. Instead of the usual snake’s nest of winding cords, Cord Lamp stands surprisingly tall. The design trio Form Us With Love makes a virtue out the problem with the Cord Lamp.
The textile cord transforms itself into a steel tube and holds aloft an oversized globe bulb, complete with dimmer and all. “You can let it irritate you, break your neck tripping over it,” says Petrus Palmér together with co-designers Jonas Pettersson and John Löfgren.
“Or you can surrender, hide it behind the skirting board or press it into a groove. But it’s smarter to make friends with the enemy, Cord Lamp turns the cursed flex into a simple eye-catcher.
If there’s any message to a lamp, just for the fun of it, what about ‘make peace not war’?”
