Eagle

Design Tham & Videgård

In 2010, the now world famous Tree Hotel was inaugurated in the village of Harads, close to the Arctic Circle in Norrbotten. The room Mirrorcube was designed by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter, which is, as the name suggests, a mirrored cube that blends in and becomes one with the surrounding forest.

The wooden house was to be fitted with a large pendant lamp, and in collaboration with ateljé Lyktan’s special tailored service, the Studio created the iconic lamp Eagle, a modern chandelier which is now being put into production.

The cube form was not only the source of inspiration for the wooden room, but also for the lamp, where the cube is folded out into the form of a magnificent bird. Apart from an iconic pendant lamp, Eagle has also been further developed into a ceiling lamp, as well as a wall lamp.

Indeed, Eagle is a lamp that can be used in many different environments. Equally as suitable over the dining table at home as it is in the office, it can also be used in public spaces, where it looks spectacular in a ”flock”. ”When we created Eagle, we set ourselves the challenge to see how we could use the cube form and create something completely new. The result was an origami-like bird,” say Bolle Tham and Martin Videgård.

Eagle was officially presented for the first time in April 2015 at the Milan Design Week.

Pendant, ceiling and wall

One of the requirements when choosing the lighting source, was that the intensity of the light had to be adjustable from strong lighting to a softer room lighting. We therefore chose LED lighting, which is diffused through acrylic glass and emits an even spread of light, both above and below the lamp.
