Norwegian Forest lights

The very first Norwegian Forest light was lit in 2007. Originally, the collection was manufactured and assembled by hand in Cathrine Kullberg from her studio workshop in Oslo, and when sales volume increased, the Norwegian lighting company Northern Lighting was handed over the licensed manufacturing and distributing of the lamps as part of their reputable range of lighting products.

The Norwegian Forest entered the classic Scandinavian tradition of using thin wood veneer strips for lighting. The double layered 0,9 mm veneer was custom made for the collection, and the assembly done by hand sewing with leather string. During the 10 years in production, the lamps were sold in art and design oriented shops in more than 20 countries, lighting many homes and public areas with the warm glow of light through wood and cut out forest contours.
In 2020 the lamp was included in permanent collections of Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum, as well as The Norwegian National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design.
