A NEW PRODUCT FROM NORTHERN LIGHTING
PRESS RELEASE – September 2011
Northern Lighting is proud to present the latest mood maker Bell, a distinguished and subtly coloured pendant lamp.
Bell is a series of shiny porcelain pendant lights. The pure beauty of archetype forms was the inspiration for these creations by designer Mark Braun. To celebrate porcelain as a substance and the possibilities of its shiny glazed surfaces, the coloured surfaces of Bell lights are on the outside, contrasting with the pure white porcelain on the inside.
The light will be available in a range of colours inspired by Scandinavian rocks and plants. Bell creates a warm and comfortable atmosphere, and is perfect to use as a
pendant above table, bar or lounge areas. It also emits a beautiful sound if knocked upon – but be careful… you don’t want to break it.
