Cosy isn't the word for Norwegian designer's warm glow...

Norwegian designer Kristine Five Melvær presented a series of lighting products at this year’s Stockholm Design Week. The Oslo National Academy of the Arts graduate put your cherished objects, precious trinkets and general acquired oddities centre-stage with her delightful Light Jars – that came over all ‘elegant, curio-laboratory chic’ – whilst the designer’s Sunday lamps kindle emotions of lazy Nordic weekends – candles glowing, and all manner of Scandi-snugness.
