It is not difficult to see how designer Markus Johansson drew inspiration from 17th century ship cannons as he created the CARRONADE lamp series. The idea of a small table lamp, with a distinctive but playful shape of a small cannon was quite a challenge. Realizing gunpowder and cannonballs references, by way of modern lighting technology then synchronized with 21st century contemporary Nordic lighting designs, was no simple task but very much a ‘Eureka’ moment.
This beautiful floor lamp exhibits craftmanship at its finest. Iconic in design, with a diffused face, held atop an elongated geometric stand, by way of a piece of skillfully manipulated solid American walnut and brass discs. This is truly, a sculpture in lighting. Equipped with the multi-functionality of a traditional floor lamp and the ability to determine the direction of the light. Carronade High exudes pure style and elegance in all surroundings.
Manufactured in matt black painted steel, brass and solid American walnut. All models are fitted with LED light bulbs.
