CORNEA / Wall 220

Sale price€349,00

CORNEA was designed by the renowned sculptor Henning Koppel in 1965 and is one of his rare lighting designs. The circular wall light is shaped with an inner, opal glass shade that provides a comfortable, diffused light. Its distinctive character is achieved by the asymmetric outer shade that encapsulates the soft, white light as two eyelids. The CORNEA lighting design is named as a reference to the transparent part of the human eye, which allows light to enter the inside and enhances sharpness.

Designed by Henning Koppel

Henning Koppel was a renowned Danish sculptor who became known for his experimental approach to sculptural forms. As a visual artist, Koppel had a vast repertoire and worked with various materials within different categories - such as lighting. He was often inspired by nature, which gave his organic designs a distinctive and consistent expression. Today, Henning Koppel is regarded as one of the great Danish designers. He has left a significant mark on the Danish modern era with his ability to create unique pieces regardless of the material.


Origin story

The CORNEA wall lamp is one of Henning Koppel's rare lighting designs. The wall lamp is dated back to 1965 and displays an emerging change of style in Koppel's designs - from purely organic to a more geometric and clean expression.


CORNEA has an outward-oriented light centred in the middle of the circular shade and is made from thick three-layered opal glass, which gives shape to a uniform and diffused light. The curved sides encapsulate the soft light while reducing the lighting on the sides. The white inside and slightly bent overhang of the shade take part in a downward reflection of the light, making for a functional and ambient lighting experience. When lit, the wall lamp lights itself up on the inside and becomes a distinctive piece of the room.

Product details

CORNEA is a simple and sophisticated lighting design available in two sizes. The wall lamp has an outer shade made of steel that comes in two matt-painted colours – either black or white. The inside of the shade is white to enhance the reflections of light emitted from the three-layered opal glass.
