Jørgen Wolff

It all started with a waste paper basket that danish cabinet maker Jørgen Wolff (1932-2003) crafted for his room. It ended up being too high and unstable but when turning it upside down, it became a beautiful cone-shaped lamp. The year was 1958 and the lamp instantly got a lot of attention as wood had never been used as a lamp shade before. Fortunately the heat testing showed that solid wood material was well suited for lighting.

Redefining traditional lighting - adding a bold yet warm dimension to its surroundings

Wood is used extensively, but with the addition of Conus in the air, another combination of materials is introduced to the interior setting. The unusual cylindrical shape and choice of wood materials make Conus a singular lamp that challenges traditional lighting concepts. It creates lines of comfort and presents a modern yet genuine impression to the observer.

Iconic danish design returns and is ready to unfold its beauty and history

Conus was an iconic statement lamp in the 60's. Browsing through scandinavian interior magazines from this decade, Conus can be found in many settings creating a warm and modern space with its unique shape and material. Wolff exhibited the lamp at many fairs and even won awards for this lamp that had not been seen before.
