Inspired by the desire to create an ambient light source with a sculptural quality, Danish husband-and-wife designers Viola Heyn-Johnsen and Jonas Trampedach have created the Parade Lamp series. Consisting of a square base and arched top in coloured glass, the geometric shape causes the expression to change depending on whichever angle the lamp is turned. The carefully selected sizes and colours complement each other in height, tone and temperature, creating a cohesive effect that forms an interlinking pattern when multiple lamps are viewed together. Equally appealing as a collection of illuminating sculptures, a single light source on a bedside cabinet or displayed with other ornaments without the light switched on, Parade combines functionality with aesthetics to create a versatile and unique lamp. The custom, integrated LED light source, which can be replaced if required, has an inline step-dimmer that allows the light output to be adjusted to different settings.
Viola Heyn-Johnsen and Jonas Trampedach are a husband-and-wife team with a shared passion for materials, objects and craftsmanship. Viola has a master’s in Visual Communication and has spent the last fifteen years working with graphic design, styling, art direction and product development. Jonas graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2009, before establishing his own design studio in Copenhagen. The studio focuses on products, furniture and lighting using diverse approaches to materials processes and techniques, with Trampedach’s work ranging from industrially produced designs to one-of-a-kind commissions. Designed in close collaboration with HAY, the Parade Lamp is the couple’s first shared design project.
