Butterfly is a small wall lamp that was designed in 1964 for Høvik Lys and later produced by Arnold Vik of Norway. In 2008 Northern Lighting decided to relaunch this Norwegian design treasure. Its uniquness lies in the combination of simplicity of form and a well preserved indirect method of exposing light, creating a bright but warm atmosphere. It looks simple, but is elegant and decorative as a single item, and is even more so when several are combined in vertical or horizontal groups.
The new heat-treated copper versions, all vary in surface colour and material structure, with oxidation and time further changing its appearance, making them unique and individual objects.
“Butterfly” a shining philosophy around white wings
Woven into a connecting body a brightness that melts into the eye
glittering without glitter
Flying without flight
Living without life
Just as plain and simple as that
