The “Lichen Leftover Light” is part of a project where Louise Hederström investigates and shapes discarded lichen from Nordgröna’s production of sound absorbers. She pushes the boundaries of what is considered junk or product in a series of handmade unique mirrors and now 2022 also a lamp.
It can be used both as wall lamp and table lamp, hanging on the wall or as a landscape on a table or sideboard.
“Through the years I have been looking at so many trees, zooming in on moss, lichen and tubers. It looks like miniature landscapes, so fascinating and expressive. The design language came out of that.”
The material is very tactile and natural. Lichen (reindeer moss) is picked under strict restrictions in the Nordic countries and the production only use natural colouring and preservation. It’s a material have been used for ages because of its qualities. The structure is built of waste wood from Byggfabriken. Both Byggfabriken and Nordgröna have their production in Malmö so everything comes from local workshops. Since lichen is a natural product, it has a faint fragrance. Measure without bulb.
