Northern Lighting


Butterfly is a small wall lamp that was designed in 1964 for Arnold Wiigs Fabrikker and later produced by Høvik Lys of Norway. In 2008 Northern Lighting decided to relaunch this Norwegian design treasure. Its uniquness lies in the combination of simplicity of form and a well preserved indirect method of exposing light, creating a bright but warm atmosphere. It looks simple, but is elegant and decorative as a single item, and is even more so when several are combined in vertical or horizontal groups.

“Butterfly” a shining philosophy around white wings
Woven into a connecting body a brightness that melts into the eye
glittering without glitter
Flying without flight
Living without life
Just as plain and simple as that
Simple simplicity

Sven I. Dysthe (Designer)
