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.
The Carronade series originated from this small distinctive cannon shaped table/wall lamp, that rests on a smooth wooden base, aided by small brass discs on either side. When used as a wall or table lamp, the dual purpose solid wood base, enables the user to rotate the spotlight position in numerous directions.

Markus Johansson graduated in 2011 from HDK (School of Design and Crafts) Goteborg Sweden His studio is located in Central Goteborg where he specializes in design and the development of design of furniture, product, graphic and lighting. Markus works with both Swedish and international design companies and has won numerous awards which also includes his highly acclaimed Nest chair which was exhibited at The Museum of Art and Design, New York. Markus explains about his work with design and product development: "My goal is to create products that are different and unusual in shape as well as function. I try to find inspiration from numerous environments and by means of analyzing and processing, I conclude that Design, for me, has to be a perfect combination of construction function and form, which conveys emotions, that subtly affects us as humans, while simultaneously, enhances our daily experiences and also, embodies lasting values." His first collaboration with LE KLINT has resulted in a new series of lighting called CARRONADE originally based on the idea of a table lamp with a distinctive playful yet challenging shape, as a small cannon.
