Our current lifestyle compels us to spend increasing amounts of time inside. Thus, achieving a pleasant indoor environment is important to our daily wellbeing. Niclas Jørgensen designed his Northern Light for this very task. It is a room divider with a built-in lighting system to recreate the effect of rays of light. LEDs cast a soft, warm glow on a delicate arrangement of strings stretched along a rippling frame. This echoes the light rays seen in the Northern Lights. ‘The light can soften hard surfaces you may encounter in the office or home. In this way, it becomes part of the space rather than a separate object,’ Niclas says.
