A new colour joins the Acorn pendant lamp series as matt black is introduced to the range. Already available in off-white and grey, the new matt black version highlights Acorn’s distinctive profile as it creates a stronger contrast.
The designer, Atle Tveit, chose a shade of matt black that resonates with sophistication and style, while providing a bold focal point for interiors decorated with lighter colours. Matt black Acorn is unusually neutral, making it easy to integrate the lamp into a wide range of settings. Acorn belongs to a growing category of nature inspired designs that celebrate the beauty of natural forms. As the name suggests, the shade recalls the hollow shell of an acorn formed after the ripened nut has fallen free. As Acorn’s new matt black version gives the surface new character, its soft contours and subtle curves continue to retain its distinctive organic shape.
Atle Tveit (born 1972) is a Norwegian furniture designer. After graduating from the Bergen Academy of Art and Design (2006) with a master’s degree, he started his own design office with a former classmate. This collaboration lasted for 4 years and resulted in many products for various Scandinavian furniture manufacturers and several awards, among them the Award for Design Excellence and the Young Talent Award from The Norwegian Design Council. Today the Atle Tveit Design studio is located in Oslo, Norway.
