Plank by Northern Lighting
Produced by Nordic lighting manufacturer Northern Lighting, Plank is a versatile modern light made from raw wood. Inspired by shipping pallets, Swedish design duo Frida Ottemo Fröberg and Marie-Louise Gustafsson sandwiched dimmable LEDs between two solid-wood planks to create a high-tech yet environmentally sound light.
Plank can be used as a pendant, wall or floor light, although due to the elongated shape it is particularly appropriate as a strip light above a desk or table. Available in light-coloured poplar wood or darker southern yellow pine, the unfinished surface has a natural appearance, with marks from the manufacturing process left visible.
Founded in 2005, Northern Lighting works with established and emerging designers to create beautiful yet practical lighting for all occasions. Its range is available from retailers in more than 30 countries.
