A Lamp for Light House

Ever since man set to sea, the nautical twilight has challenged free roaming at nightfall. The problem was partially solved in the year 299 BC, when the first known lighthouse was erected in Alexandria, Egypt.

Nautico is an abstract interpretation of the vast creatures of the sea and like all living entities, every single lamp is unique. From the stained copper with its vivid colors, to the bubble inhabited glass.

Nautico is intending to mediate a dialogue between Light House, its inhabitants and the sea. For millennia humans have adapted the sea to our needs by the process of reclamation, but now it seems the tide might be turning and the awareness of our symbiotic relationship is more important than ever.

Nautico was initially designed for the halls of Light House, a prestigious skyrise in Aarhus, completed in 2023.

From Barcelona to Kyoto

The process of bringing the Nautico pendant to life has been one of Nordic Tales’ most comprehensive undertakings to date. From studying Gaudí in Barcelona to visiting a jellyfish research center in Kyoto, and from producing the various components that go into the design to coordinating with interior designers, lighting designers, and builders involved in realizing the final installation at Light House, every step has contributed to how Nordic Tales has matured and found its niche.
