The Konkylie light was designed by Louis Weisdorf for the Tivoli Garden in Copenhagen in 1963. It was partly inspired at a technical level by Verner Pantons Moon lamp. Louis Weisdorf created the design for his next pendant light called Turbo in 1965. Consisting of 12 uniform aluminium lamellae spiral-twisted to form a flower-like sphere, the Turbo was partly inspired by Japanese rice-paper lanterns. In contrast to Konkylie the lamellae were positioned vertically, reducing the accumulation of dust. Other designer famous for his futuristic looking modern pendant lamps is Simon Karkov. His lamps - NORM 03, NORM 06 and particularly the NORM 69 are classical examples of best Danish design. NORM 69 an award-winning lamp consisting of 69 identical white plastic parts though designed in 1969 is still sold widely all over the world. It was produced in a few sizes and it is very suitable for minimalistic modern interiors. NORM 69 is a real favourite with contemporary interior designers.
Using ottomans in home décor is not new, and according to the Encyclopaedia* Britannica (not Wikipedia) the ottoman has been with us since the late 18th century when it was introduced to Europe from Turkey (the Ottoman Empire). Its origins are irrelevant to its current use, which is as a footstool or a seat. Some ottomans consist of a small padded seat standing on four legs, while others are in the form of a padded box with a hinged lid - the storage ottoman. These have several uses in the home of which seven shall be discussed here.
Most ottomans manufactured today are constructed with solid hardwood frames and leather or synthetic (leather-like) covers. Synthetic materials include vinyl, faux-leather, bi-cast leather, or microfiber fabric. Ottomans with real leather are not that common and are expensive. Many people who buy ottomans today look for ones with storage as well as trays. Storage functionality is an asset in compact living spaces. You can store anything from blankets, magazines, plates, or any other items that you do not need lying around all the time. When I was living in a dorm, I had an ottoman with 2 units. I used one storage cube to put my blanket, and the other for books. It was very convenient.
