Hang is a lamp designed by Rikke Hagen that combines form, function and aesthetics in an understated design. Hang is part of the New Danish Modern series by Normann Copenhagen, featuring Danish design and Danish manufacture. Its expression is approachable, its design classical.
Hang was inspired by soft retro shapes, making Hang into a classic design object that will suit most homes. In this way, it is timeless and characterised by the design traditions that we are so proud of in Denmark.
Rikke Hagen explains: When we talk about Danish design, we often talk about function, aesthetics and shape. It is exactly these characteristics that Hang is a good example of. Hang is very simple and is more functional than decorative. I think that this is liberating, because if the lamp can manage this alone it is perfect. It isn’t making a statement. It is what it is.”
Hang is manufactured using traditional processes at a foundry in Amager. Its exterior has a gloss finish and a matt finish internally and is produced in black and white in two sizes. The lamp is supplied with energy saving bulbs.
