The ultimate book on Danish Lights of the last century

Verner Panton's 1970 VP Globe light for Louis Poulsen is reproduced from Strandberg's exquisite new book on Danish Lights: 1920–Now. Clean, buoyant design, substantial texts, lovely paper and printing and a special cover treatment—half-clothbound, half-hardcover—make this a book for any design lover's bookshelf, coffee table or bedside stack. From gas-lit street lights to iconic pendants, desk and floor lamps and chandeliers, this book makes the case for why Danish light design has been so consistently outstanding and influential over the last century. "In Denmark, the light source is so important because we spend so much time indoors," contemporary designer Jonas Edvard is quoted. "Light defines our life. As a result, we might be slightly more persnickety about our light. We are not content with simply having a bright light source placed close to the ceiling in the center of the room; that doesn't work for us."
