Conus

by Jørgen Wolf

Wood is used everywhere but placing Conus into the air adds another dimension to the combinations of material in the interior settings.  

Designed in the 60's by the danish wood maker Jørgen Wolff, this classic made from wood shaped as a cone, makes it unique as choice of lighting. Even though its shape is special, it still leaves the eye with a modest impression, being suitable for any context.

Conus

Crafted by the handmaker Jørgen Wolf, this cylinder lamp made from oak wood, creates lines of comfort and leaves the eye with a modern yet authentic look. Made from a quincidince, the iconic Conus lamp from the 60's reinvents the shapes and material of lamps, with its unique design and lighting.

This picture from the 60's, shows the original production of the conus lamp in Wolf's own workshop.

From paper basket to lamp

It all started with a waste paper basket Wolff 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. When launching it, the lamp instantly got a lot of attention as wood had never been used as a lamp shade before, and fortunately his heat testing showed the solid wood material was well suited for lighting.

A Classic Returns

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