MOJÖ lighting

Materials: MOLGER mirror + JANSJÖ work lamp

Description: I wanted an alternative and complement to the ceiling lights in my bathroom and powder room. Seeing how the JANSJÖ LED work lamp is assembled (the stem has 2 screws at its end to connect it to the heavy, metal base), and having installed MOLGER mirrors that have a wide, protruding wood frame, I figured I could combine the two products to create very cost-effective, functional (flexible) lighting at the sinks.

Power outlets within range are required and I recommend careful drilling of the holes into the wood. The original base of the JANSJÖ lamp can be used to mark where to drill. I preferred using the screws provided with the lamp, so I ended up drilling with two bits: the smaller one all the way through to accommodate the screws, the larger one just enough to allow the screw heads to be recessed and to reach.

(As I hinted, don’t let the larger bit drill all the way through–it almost happened to me!) It is particular convenient that just enough space can be found behind the MOLGER mirrors to tuck away unneeded electrical wire length. I used 2 JANSJÖ lamps for the 100 cm MOLGER mirror and 1 lamp for the 60 cm mirror.

    This lighting is a great idea for a powder room / guest bathroom where you don’t need glaring bright lights. For a main bathroom it may be hard to shave or apply make up with out brighter light I’m thinking.

    Good looking lights. Like how they are VERY different from the usual vanity lights. I’m not sure that spotlights give the right (soft) kind of light in a bathroom though.
    Also, I think that the electrical outlet above the Molger need covering up with some sort of box/sculpture, whatever, since those bulky black transformers and wires are really distracting.

    To take this bathroom from nice to fab, I would add a large, bold piece of art above the tub. This would help to make the beautiful tub area to become the focal point, leading the viewer’s eyes away from the toilet, washer, shelf etc., all lined up along the walls.

    The wc looks a bit tight there in the second photo. Nice tiles in the first bathroom.
