Northern Birdy Swing Table Lamp
The Birdy swing lamp, was originally designed in the 1950s by the pioneer of contemporary Nordic lighting, Birger Dahl. Now after careful consultation with successors of the Birger Dahl family, Northern has brought an original sketch that was never released into production for the first time.
Mirroring the strong geometric shapes and soft, gentle contours of the long-armed wall lamp, the Birdy swing lamp continues to celebrate this leading interior architect’s striking signature style and ever relevant modern design language.
Available in a choice of black, brass or steel finishes, the Birdy swing lamp is easy-to-use and has a smooth rotating axis thanks to its steel body and aluminium shade.

<p>Award-winning designer Birger Dahl (1916 – 1998) was a pioneer of contemporary Scandinavian lighting. The mid-century years were a formative period of his work, when he forged his signature streamlined style and launched a new vision of lighting design. Dahl’s career had actually begun the previous decade, when he became head of design at Norwegian electronics firm Sønnico and created the award-winning Dokka pendant lamp. Dokka was the first lamp in Norway to receive a Gold Medal award at the prestigious Triennale di Milano, which brought Norwegian lighting under the international spotlight. While acclaimed for his lighting designs, Dahl is also considered to be one of Norway’s leading Post-war interior architects. Strict geometric shapes, such as circles, cones and cylinders, were the building blocks of Dahl’s design vocabulary, which he softened with gentle contours. He emphasised the purity of form, highlighting the shape of the object rather than hiding it behind decorative details or layers of ornamentation. Sensibilities like these explain why his work still appears modern today, and why lighting designs such as Dokka, Birdy and Dahl are so compatible with the interiors of our time</p>
