Orla is a wall-mounted lamp with an elm wood bracket and cast porcelain shade. The idea came from an old lamp that Rikke Hagen’s grandfather had over the workbench in his carpentry workshop. It was nothing more than a few roughly cut sticks with a shaded light bulb hanging from the end of the cord. When her grandfather passed away, she inherited his workbench, his tool cabinet – and the lamp. Rikke Hagen used the lamp for nearly ten years in her first studio as a workshop lamp. She often thought that one day she would have to modernise it. Now it is done! Rikke Hagen’s grandfather’s name was Orla.

Rikke Hagen graduated from The Danish Design School (now the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design), the line of glass and ceramics , in 1998, and since then she has received several awards for her design, including Ole Haslund’s Honorary Grant in 2007, the iF product design award in 2008 and the Award Nordic Relations in 2010.
