Norm 69 pendant light
If you can't justify paying out the price of an Artichoke lamp, how about a vintage design inspired by it? That's what you get with the Norm 69 pendant light.
There is one drawback, it's actually an early example of flat pack, with a total of 69 pieces. But putting it together is half the fun. The kit-based designed was the work of Simon Karkov, with the lamp going into production (as the name suggests) in 1969, by Danish firm Normann.
The biggest plus is the price. The light is available in white and cream and in four sizes, starting at just £49. Great design from 60s at a price most of us can afford. And an evening's fun putting it together.
