Birdy Wall Short

Birdy Wall Short

Birdy is a table, wall and floor lamp series designed in 1952, in a modernist style. The lamp series was produced and sold by the Norwegian electricity company Sønnico (Oslo) for many years. In 1954 the table lamp, then known as “s-30016” was awarded the highly esteemed Golden Medal at the Milan triennale.

In 2013 Northern decided to re-launch this design classic, taking care to preserve the original shape and highly functional features that at first made it such a well–loved light. The lamp series is available in off-white or matt grey colour with satin nickel finish and matt black colour with brass metal finish. To commemorate the centenary of Dahl’s birth in 1916, a new version of Birdy table is available in the colour Marsala, produced in a numbered series.
