A Petal of Metal

Petal is a minimalistic table lamp, created by Swiss designer Jörg Boner. The lamp hides the lightbulb and uses the reflections of the light to create a cosy atmosphere of comfortable lighting.

Jörg Boner says: “The reference point for the final mode of expression for Petal is in the choice of material. Light cannot shine through sheet metal, as it isn’t transparent. Instead I utilized the reflection of light on the material for the design. I wanted a table lamp that would emit the optimal amount of light by using the minimal amount of material.”

The lamp was originally designed as a 75th anniversary present for the customers of a Swiss company producing metal fittings and lamps. After the anniversary, the lamp sat on a shelf at Jörg Boner’s design studio for a year, until he contacted Normann Copenhagen.
