Cadovius Flower Lamp®

Design by Poul Cadovius, 1968

Award-winning shelving systems, chairs and fiberglass components. These are just a few of the numerous products developed through the years by the famous Danish designer Poul Cadovius.

In 1968, he could also add lamps to his impressive list of products and inventions, when launching the extraordinary and decorative FLOWER LAMP®.

As the name implies, the FLOWER LAMP® is not a classic lighting lamp. It is more a decoration - a small installation and a cool and decorative way to light up plants and flowers. The lamp can be installed in many different ways. Either one single lamp or several lamps in small groups or placed in a line next to each other, a few centimetres from the floor - like it was done in the 1960s in the Cadovius-showroom The Circle House.

Poul Cadovius had an exceptional skill to foresee trends. In 1948, he launched the wall-mounted ROYAL SYSTEM® shelving system based on the idea that furniture should not take up floor space, and it was also a current trend that gave him the idea for the FLOWER LAMP® in 1968. In the 1960s, many people used lamps in the garden to light up the flowerbeds, and with the launch of the FLOWER LAMP®, Poul Cadovius converted this trend to indoor use.

The design of the lamp is quite simple. It consists of two aluminium bowls connected by four thin steel pins where the lower bowl works as a flowerpot illuminated by the light from the upper bowl. A simple yet brilliant idea. dk3’s relaunch of the wonderful retro lamp hits right into the current trend of hanging up plants and flowers, uniting flower power vibes from the 60’s with modern interior design.
