The Milan furniture fair brings together designers and manufactures from different backgrounds and styles. Alongside a wealth of furniture, surfaces and accessories, the fair is a great show to see new lighting fixtures and lamps.

On showcase by Danish design studio is Norm 06. Made from lamp shade foil, the lamp is based on the natural forms of a lily. The novel shape means the bulb is fully immersed inside the shade creating a diffused and softer light. Adding to the novel shape, the lamp is self assembly and can be put together manually without the use of glue. Ideal for cafés, restaurants, hotels and bars, the Norm 06 lamp combines fluidity with stunning design.
