Just like in 2019, the beginner found herself on the podium at the end of the second season of Denmark’s Next Classic. Like Isabel Ahm, last year’s winner in the lamp category, Anne Boysen had never tried her hand at lamp design. Perhaps the fresh take on lamp design is the secret ingredient when it comes to creating exciting and original designs, because the result is unmistakeable. The inspiration came in the form of moonlight streaming through Boysen’s curtains and onto her desk, where she experimented with various surfaces before deciding that glass was the best solution to ensure a direct light and bring a sense of space to the room.
The Moonsetter lamp is dense—owing to its raw aluminium construction that weighs 20 kg—yet unmistakeably elegant. The 360-degree rotating disc invites curious fingers to play with the light, which reflects and diffuses into the room. The neat, minimalist aesthetic and simple geometric shapes are perfect for both modern and classic décor, where the lamp catches and seduces the eye. The lamp is part functional light source and part artistic sculpture, as the glossy surface plays with the other objects and light sources in the room, giving the lamp a dynamic touch. The functionality is complemented by a roller switch, which can be adjusted by foot, allowing you to finetune the brightness and direction of the light to ensure that it always meets your needs.
Moonsetter is an instant classic, as evidenced by the fact that Louis Poulsen has offered to put Boysen’s stunning design into production. Moonsetter is following in the footsteps of legends like the Cone and FlowerPot. One hundred copies of Moonsetter will be available in Danish shops from October 2021, followed by a limited collection of 100 lamps, each with a unique serial number. Moonsetter will then go into mass production. If you want an artistic touch with an exciting, creative light, then keep an eye on Moonsetter and Anne Boysen.
