Inspired by a cartoon: Normann Copenhagen’s Cap Table Lamp

Introducing Cap, a functional table lamp with an adjustable shade. The German design duo KaschKasch are its creators. They have drawn their inspiration from the cartoon character Calimero, a charming little chicken with an eggshell on its head. It was this eggshell that gave them the idea for the large, semi-circular lampshade: the rounded shape creates a counterbalance to the stringent, geometric design.

“In spite of its simple, almost sculptural shape, the Cap Lamp’s design oozes with personality,” says Poul Madsen, CEO and co-founder of Normann Copenhagen. “The shade is rotatable, making it possible to direct the light. This makes it functional as a reading lamp, for spreading a lot of light or creating a cozy lighting atmosphere. We immediately fell for the contemporary shape, well-thought-out function and atmospheric character of Cap.” 

Cap offers a colour palette of fashionable tones: dusty light blue, feminine blush, classic white and deep midnight blue.
