a little help?


: : found this beauty in a vintage design store in .montreal. a few weeks ago when I was visiting my sister. it's got a swiveling teak arm, and the profile of the lamp itself is just beautiful. it's like a happy cloud hanging next to my bed.

but I was hoping for some help, all I know is that it's a danish design, made in .denmark. in the 60's.....but I'd love to find out more about it, so if you've seen similar lamps, or have any information about this one, I would love to know. I've googled, searched e.bay....but can't seem to find anything. I'm hoping you guys can help me out. thank you!

: : update : : new photos of the lamp. I keep staring at it. my friend .maiya. has developed lamp envy. maybe these photos will her make her more jealous? so far, no lead on its origin. it might remain a mystery.

Here via SprayGlue. Not sure what your lamp is made of but I found this:

It looks like the Calabasa Hanging lamp from Hennig Dyes (in Costa Rica)
Really like your blog too!

Den är jättefin, men jag vet inte vad den heter. Larutz.com har ju en massa danska godbitar, kanske att den finns där?

Laurab::Thank you for the tip! my lamp is actually made out of some kind fo plastic, thin white strips that slightly overlap. The lamps on that website were beautiful!

Cleo:: Vad kul att du kikade in! Tack för tipset! ska leta där. Hoppas allt är bra!

I don't mean to keep thinking about your lamp but I was just looking for furniture at DWR and found this that reminded me of what you have.

I know yours is older, but figured I'd point it out. Ok, done thinking about your lamp now!
