Dogu pendant lamp

By Fritz Hansen Lighting


  • Description

    The name Dogu™ is Japanese and refers to old traditional figurines portraying animals and humanoids – much like his own art does. The shade is made of bone china – an exclusive material created from actual bone powder and white clay. The translucent material ensures that the light projects through the shade and renders the lamp light, warm and extremely cosy at the same time, a feature fit for lighting up the dark hours especially in the North.
    The charming irregularities found in bone china have a lot in common with the beauty marks we experience on natural leather hides. They underline the personality of the material and ensures that no two lamps are the same.
    Dogu™ is curved from cord to bottom – from the shade in bone china to the suspension in aluminium. The very same suspension contains small gaps that project the light upwards. The result is a comfortable, soft diffused light.

    Michael Geertsen
    Michael Geertsen was born in Denmark and trained as a ceramicist in 1988. He graduated as an Industrial Designer at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design in 1993 and added to his ceramicist skills a profound sense of the Danish design principles of integrity of form and sensitivity of materials. Simultaneously, Geertsen’s design represents an inimitable courage that exists somewhere between art, craft and design. Over the course of 30 years Geertsen has developed his own distinctive vocabulary of forms in his sculptural ceramics – a vocabulary reflected in his design for Lightyears as well. Both as artist and designer Michael Geertsen deconstructs and interprets classic ceramic objects and his fascination for cylindric and conical outlines in his lamp design is both distinctive and mesmerising.Michael Geertsen’s art is represented at the Metropolitan Museum and MAD/Museum of Arts and Design in New York as well as The Victoria and Albert Museum in London among many other places.
