This series of pendant lamps is the latest creation of Simon Karkov for Normann Copenhagen. The hanging lamp shades ship flat and are self-assembled, without glue, into lilly-inspired forms. The efficiency of Karkov’s design is amazing. Asked about his vision, he states, â€œI dream of developing new ways of designing furniture and larger objects through the self-assembly concept. This concept must be able to work on a larger scale and that thought fascinates me. Right now I am working on a collection of furniture, a draft for a boat and more self-assembly lamps â€“ weâ€™ll see if they get done.â€ The lamps come in three sizes and are available here from $48 to $97.
