As leaders in new and original Nordic design Northern are thrilled to share the Archive Table Lamp, their first collaboration with fellow Norwegians Studio Sløyd.

Minimal in appearance but with maximum presence, this unique and memorable lighting product began its life as a series of paper models created during Designers’ Saturday, Oslo’s largest and most important national design event.

“We hope our lamp will become an object that the user cherishes and lives with for a long time.” Studio Sløyd

Now thanks to their materials focussed approach, Herman and Mikkel have effortlessly replicated these initial folds and explorative curves in a striking steel.

“We wanted to see how the simplest geometric shapes could become interesting and playful tools to create a contemporary and exciting lamp concept. The result is a minimalistic lamp series with a strong presence and memorable silhouette that ranges from table lamps, to pendant lamps in different sizes.” – Studio Sløyd.

Available in two sizes, with two colours in each, the Archive Lamp is perfect for a home, an office or a public space, and thanks to its arched shade it softly reflects an adjustable warm light downwards and outwards ensuring it as functional as it is elegant.


“Over the past year, we have been discussing, planning, and refining our ideas. The collaboration with Studio Sløyd has been a pleasure; the two designers, Mikkel and Herman, bring a wealth of new perspectives and knowledge. At Northern, we believe in pushing the boundaries of Nordic design, and our partnership with Studio Sløyd for the Archive Lamp series is a testament to that commitment. These lamps are a perfect fusion of minimalism and functionality, making them a must-have addition to any interior.”
