Orla is a wall lamp by Rikke Hagen made of porcelain and elm. The light source is LED.
The idea came from an old lamp my grandfather had in his carpentry workshop over the workbench. It was nothing more than a few roughly cut sticks with a shaded light bulb hanging from the end of the cord.
When my grandfather passed away, I got his workbench, cupboards for tools – and the lamp. I used it for nearly 10 years in my first glass-studio as a workshop lamp and often thought that one day I had to modernize it. Now it is done.
My grandfather’s name was Orla.
