The flower-like Blom table lamp by Norwegian designer Andreas Engesvik is compact standing at a mere 24cm tall with a diameter of 15cm. With its petal-shaped shade, its name is a contraction of the word blomst, which is Norwegian for flower. Those petals aren't just pretty but are also functional; the intensity of the light can be adjusted depending on personal preference by rotating the petals as they act on the diffuser. The lamp's aluminium base ensures its stability. A compact fluorescent bulb guarantees good lighting with low energy consumption and the polycarbonate petals do not conduct heat easily. The lamp, which won a Reddot Award 2014, is designed to be portable and to blend into many different settings. The Blom lamp is available in red, grey, green, yellow, white and black.
