With a background as a full time windsurfer and a decent boxer, Morten Voss has not followed the traditional road for a designer. Nevertheless, today he stands out as one of the finest exponents of the new generation of Danish design talents.
It is Voss’ ambition to create design that both challenges and moves the traditional preconceptions and at the same time appeals to our sense of humour and imagination. This is clearly apparent in the new series Attitude, which consists of a sculptural lounge chair and table.
”I do everything I can to break the normal rules within design; as a designer you have to introduce something new - or else there’s no reason to be a designer” says Morten Voss.
Atomheart table lamp has been created with inspiration from the Sci-Fi design universe, where everything is possible and nothing is inconceivable. As such Sci-Fi and Atomheart are a tribute to imagination as one of mankind's most important qualities. When the table lamp is lit, the design of the shade forms contrasts which enhance the impression of the form of the glass, where no two angles are alike, but change all the way round. So the lamp appears as a complex and distinctive light source with a life of its own.
