CADOVIUS FLOWER LAMP

Design by Poul Cadovius, 1968

Award-winning shelving systems, chairs and fiberglass components. These are just a few of many 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.

The FLOWER LAMP is not a lamp in the original sense of the word. It is more a decoration - a small installation and a cool and decorative way to light up your plants and flowers. Use one single lamp or hang them in small groups in different lengths. You can also do as Poul Cadovius did in his showroom The Circle House and let the cord go all the way from the ceiling to the floor and place the lamp very close to the floor.

Poul Cadovius had an exceptional skill to foresee future consumer needs based on current trends. In 1948, he launched the wall-mounted ROYAL SYSTEM® shelving system based on the idea that furniture should not use floor space, and it was also a current trend that gave him the idea for the FLOWER LAMP. In the 1960’s, many people used lamps in the garden to light up parts of the flowerbeds, and with the launch of the FLOWER LAMP, Poul Cadovius made it possible to convert this trend to indoor use. And surely he must also have been inspired by the late 1960s’ flower power movement when designing the lamp. The design of the lamp is quite simple. It consists of two brass colored aluminium bowls connected by four stainless steel pins where the lower bowl works as a flowerpot illuminated by the light from the upper bowl. A simple yet brilliant idea.

Now, dk3 is relaunching the FLOWER POWER RS50 model in anodized aluminium in brass. The revival of this 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.

The FLOWER LAMP® was designed by Poul Cadovius in 1968 and
relaunched by dk3 in 2021. The lamp consists of two bowls in anodized
aluminium, connected by four connecting pins, where the lower bowl
works as a flowerpot illuminated by the light from the upper bowl.
Measurements: Ø 45,4 cm – H 50,2 cm
