Fienile by Daniel Rybakken by Luceplan

July 2019
The long-term collaboration between Norwegian designer Daniel Rybakken and Luceplan has given birth to a new family of lights. Fienile was first created as a table lamp, then interpreted in suspension and floor models for outdoors. ‘I chose the name Fienile (hayloft) as a precise reference to the farm in Norway where my grandfather spent his childhood,’ explains the designer. ‘A memory that has inspired me from afar to create this table lamp. With its low-pitched roof, lateral pillars and central wall, I wanted to explicitly suggest the world of Nordic architecture. Most table lamps are organised around a vertical axis but Fienile takes a different direction; it is symmetrical around its length with two ends and two main facades. Thinking about this project, I imagined creating a product that could also welcome and shed light on our own objects of affection, to keep close at hand on a table, in a preferred or special position.’
