Stockholm shadows on the wall





Kalle casts pretty shadows on the wall with this Stockholm bowl.

Kalle says, “It’s a wall lamp with a decorative light cast on the wall itself. The lighting effect is visible at daytime but quite spectacular at night and the ‘wall flower’ is well over 1m large.

The ingredients are:
- Stockholm stainless steel bowl
- 35W reflector bulb
- Electronic dimmer
- Lamp mounting kit and lamp wire

The light fixing is mounted through a drilled hole in the center of the bowl with ordinary light fixing material. The bowl is hard stainless steel and pretty thick, so be warned that the drilling takes a while.

It is mounted with a standard screw in one of the center holes in the leaf-pattern where it is almost invisible.

    the link to the steel bowl doesn’t work anymore, could you perhaps describe it (or post a photo) so I can find something similar?
