Already available in white, grey and petrol blue, the iconic Me lamp is now also available in matt black – a colour that's synonymous with contemporary interior design. The sophisticated finish highlights the lamp's silhouette, giving it a subtle lustre that shows off its cutting-edge character.
Created by Norwegian designers Morten Skjærpe Knarrum (below, left) and Jonas Norheim (below, right), known eponymously as Morten & Jonas, the Me lamp is indicative of their signature style – forward-thinking design marked by curiosity, imagination and humour.

Morten & Jonas are recognised for their ability to design to social agendas, famously enlisting the help of incarcerated men and women to manufacture their 'Bake Me a Cake' table lamp, and since its launch, the design duo have earned several awards and had their work exhibited worldwide. While the Me lamp gets a lot of attention, it was actually made with subtlety in mind. "Me sheds light on individual needs, such as finding quiet moments in a fast-paced world, or using an eye-catching design to create individual styles," explain Morten & Jonas. The Me lamp is available in South Africa via Northern Lighting. Visit for more evocative products by the duo.
