Made To Stay Snowball Pendant Light

Made To Stay Snowball Pendant Light

Snowball designed in the year 2009 by Carsten Jörgensen is referencing the long tradition of paper lanterns we know from China and Japan. The design is although not an iconoclastic approach but rather an attempt to give something valued a twist. Paper lanterns are in reality extremely demanding craft objects when paper is bent over a framework of thin bamboo sticks. To get a flat sheet of paper to bend along the bamboo constructions curves demand deep knowledge and extraordinary skills since paper can’t be forced into a 3 dimensional double curved plan. The cocooning material used for our lamps has entire different material properties since it has the ability to shrink over frames of sturdy wires resulting in so called double curved planes hardly achievable in any other material. These planes seem to be of an organic character and of a highly aesthetic beauty. Since design oscillates between sheer functionality and the brain’s ability, in a hallucinating way, to combine what we see and what we think we see, blended with an infinite number of sensitive experiences. Then it is no wonder that seeing the imprint of one’s fingers in a snowball has a similarity with the concave helix plane winding around the bulb in an object named Snowball pretending to be a lamp. Light is although filtered, bended, reflected and refracted along these curves and appears glowing complementary to the perception of a snowball. That is the point, hard to comprehend, but contradictions often foster huge energies out of which light in splendid granulated crystals can be imagined to spread in waves like rings of waves when a stone is thrown into a pond.

      Bought some lovely wine glasses as a gift, quick delivery, great customer service and high quality product.

      Would definitely buy from Olson and Baker again.

      Excellent communication and speedy delivery...

      Couldn't have been better and will certainly buy from the company again.

      It has been an absolute pleasure buying a lovely piece of furniture from Olsen + Baker. Russell has been a delight to deal with, keeping me informed at every step of the delivery, even down to which colour would fit with my decor - nothing was too much.

      I can’t recommend highly enough.

      Olson + Bakers service and products have been outstanding. I can't recommend Jonathan at Olson + Baker enough.

      He is an absolute star and has gone out of his way to provide superb service.

      The service is superb and the website is so intuitive! 10 out of 10! :D Lee

      Very good service, great communication and arrived very promptly

      Thank you

      Fantastic service, Jonathan was extremely helpful through my purchase.

      Definitely recommend and would use again.

      Thanks! Angela

      Beautiful item arrived earlier than indicated.

      Customer service informed me of this & then followed up after delivery to make sure it arrived safely.

      Highly recommend!

      Great range of products.

      Purchased a beautiful rug from here and had a smooth overall buying experience.

      Fantastic customer service throughout the ordering process.

      Great products - really pleased with my order.

      So glad I came across Olson & Baker for my home accessories that I would not find elsewhere on the High Street.

      Really excellent customer service. Can not recommend this company highly enough - the products are high quality and their communication with the customer is first class. Jonathon always responded promptly to any queries and was very helpful.

      I would definitely buy from them again.

      First class service.

      The Olson Baker team continue to deliver outstanding advice and product knowledge.

      Recently purchased a Nordic Style candle holder, which I had admired at a recent stay at a holiday home in Norfolk.  Product arrived very quickly. Contact via email from Jonathan. Excellent customer service and a gorgeous product too.

      Thank you Jonathan and all at Olson and Baker.

      Olson + Baker were wonderful to deal with.

      We purchased our item (a beautiful coat hook) but had to delay delivery due to a trip overseas.

      We weren't dealing with an automated system, just real people who cared enough to help.

      Beautiful and high quality furniture!

      Excellent delivery and customer services, even during difficult times like Covid 19.

      Excellent product but more importantly during these difficult times was the customer service level and great delivery team ....

      take note Heal’s as you’ve not got a clue how to service customers

      Lovely website, great communication, fast delivery and they came in at a price other shops couldn't compete with on the chair I was after.

      Easily recommended.
