LZF Lamps: Dutch Courage

LZF has always been quite fond of tulips, those perennial bulbous plants in the lily family. Here’s a fact that might help you win a pub trivia night; did you know there are around 75 wild species of tulip in the world? No either did we until we looked it up in our office copy of Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Tulips But Were Too Afraid to Ask.

The Dutch love tulips even more than we do; indeed there was a period in the 1600s when a single tulip would sell for more than 10 times the annual wages of a skilled craftsman. Of course, like all economic bubbles, Tulipmania (as it became known) couldn’t last, and the bottom fell out of the market. Some put the blame on the growing popularity of the humble hyacinth. Curse you hyacinth!

Anyway, the Dutch still have a love affair with tulips, and in fact the city of Haarlem in the northwest Netherlands is now the centre of a major flower-bulb-growing district and famous for its fields of tulips.

We thought it was about time to introduce Haarlem to another type of flower – the Poppy. This particular Poppy is none other than that fabulous wood veneer suspension lamp designed by the German Übermensch Burkhard Dämmer. It has been utilised in a stunning residential interior design in Haarlem, on the 20th floor by local Inge Bouman Interior Architect and resembles a lighthouse shining out.

Bouman has used the Poppy (in cherry wood) over the main dining room table, where it hangs beside another popular LZF lamp; Nut, by Irish designer Ray Power.

Both Poppy and Nut provide a modern sculptural detail to this essentially classic interior with its parquetry floors, tub chairs and antique objet-art.

The interior also features a 2 Totem 4, also by Burkhard Dämmer. A statement piece wherever it is used, the Totem 4 is made from three Poppies and a Pod stacked to create a very impressive lamp that is more than 2.3 metres tall. Inge Bouman specified the Totem 4 to hang from the high point of the skillion ceiling in the living area and bedroom, framing the sweeping district views.

There are also 2 Guiijaros wall lamps by Marivi Calvo, utilized in the bathroom.

We’d love to thank our distributor in Holland, iLLum for supplying the lamps, and of course Inge Bouman for selecting LZF in the first place.

A bunch of tulips is on its way.
