ORIGIN STORY

Inspired by its radiant exterior, the lamp earned the name "Kassa Blanca," which translates to "shiny box" in Danish. This name is a playful nod to both the enchanting city of Casablanca and LYFA’s own Blanka Road address in Copenhagen. 

DESIGNED BY SIMON P. HENNINGSEN

From a young age, Simon P. Henningsen learned about the impact of different kinds of light and the qualities of lighting from his father, the legendary Danish architect and lighting designer, Poul Henningsen. The two worked together on various design tasks for the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen and in 1948, Simon succeeded his father and became chief architect in the amusement park.
Today, Simon P. Henningsen’s work is characterised by a distinctive whimsical and geometric aesthetic and his use of reflections and shimmering surfaces. His unique designs are collector’s items and still admired across the world.  

Lightscapes

The KASSABLANKA lamp, with its unique design, gently diffuses light to create a warm and inviting glow. Its structure provides indirect lighting, ensuring a glare-free experience and enhancing any space with a soft, ambient illumination.
