Tell it to the Moon is a project that started roughly in the year 2000.

A small spot that could easily be moved around, was non intrusive yet with a quiet personality.

A versatile light to emphasize something that you especially like, or simply to distribute light around a living space more evenly in order to get a comfortable indirect light. Or even to work on backgrounds, behind a laptop or a tv, to achieve less contrast for your eyes.

A type of lighting that gives you light from your own environment.

The project got many designs, several names, and it actually took 15 years to finally get a shape I could be happy with. In the meantime, technological development allowed me to fit the little lamp with an LED bulb which light that consume very little energy, that won't burn your hand if you touch the lamp, and last but not least, has such an excellent color rendering that will get you out of the slightly cold and grey aura created by most energy saving light sources.

Tell it to the Moon is edited in unglazed porcelain, handmade in Denmark in a limited edition of 500 pieces.
