How did the idea for the Tip Lamp come about?
The initial idea for Tip came from the angled lampshade, lending the design its individualism and character. For the functional aspect, I wanted to reduce the number of moving mechanical parts; something that always turns out to be rather tricky and it prompted us to find the ideal proportions between the lamp’s height, angle and length for the perfect lighting surface.
Did Scandinavian design values influence the form of the design?
The values were applied to the matter of solving the functions of the lamp. The approach was to give it a simple expression without neglecting the inviting form of the design.
