Designers Andreas Hopf and Axel Nordin were inspired by the operating principle of kerosene lamps, an adjustable luminaire with clever routing of air through an adjustable burner and flue to maximise soot-less non-flickering illumination, for their Laval table lights.

“Intent on decoding the kerosene lamp for the modern day age, we realised that a kerosene lamp’s airflow principle suits passive cooling of higher-efficiency LEDs rather properly.” says Hopf, Nordin. “An aluminium cylinder is capped on each ends with polished steel ventilation discs. The LED’s heat draws air from beneath, previous a passive heat sink, and exhausts it by way of a partially shot blasted borosilicate de Laval jet.”

The table lights are named for Gustav de Laval, a Swedish engineer who, in 1893, received a patent for a steam turbine he created. Laval table lights are at the moment on display in the Greenhouse 2014 exhibition at the Stockholm Furniture Fair.
