Lamps have always fascinated Scandinavian designers. One of the reasons for this can be attributed to their vast exposure to the distinctive, soft light that comes with their dark Nordic winters.

As part of Copenhagen Design Week 2011, the exhibition features brilliant sustainable lamps with a focus on new materials, easy transportation, energy-efficiency and repurposed standard components.
