Semi-transparent, sculptural and sensuous characterise the Dogu™ lamp by the versatile artist Michael Geertsen, whose art is inspired by the correlation between sculpture and functionality. The Dogu lamp is quite similar to Geertsen’s art with its organic silhouette and smooth surface. The name "Dogu” is Japanese and refers to the traditional ceramic figures shaped like animals and manlike creatures and more than 10,000 years old. They had no utility value; however, they had great immaterial and emotional function. In the shape of Geertsen’s modern Dogu lamp, these properties are combined in a useful and aesthetic function. The moulded lamp shade is made of bone china, a semi-transparent material made of white clay with bone ash, which gives it a sensuous and light expression. The lamp casts a soft and golden light, which characterises the Nordic tradition of applying light to bring out a certain mood and atmosphere. The small irregularities of the bone china resemble the natural marks of e.g. natural leather and add life and personality to the material, which accentuate the unique diversity of the lamps.
Dogu is curved from the cord to the base - from the bone china lamp shade to the aluminium suspension. This suspension has small gaps, which cast the light upwards. The result is a pleasant, soft and diffused light.
