Porta is the first portable lamp in Normann Copenhagen's lighting collection. Characterized by a rounded, organic design, the cylindrical base and elongated dome of the lampshade contribute to its aesthetic cohesion. The lampshade is designed to meet the need for pleasant mood lighting in tight spaces: when rotated to a 90-degree angle, it takes up less space and integrates easily into compact spaces such as windowsills, small café tables or shelves.
Porta's flexibility is further enhanced by its mobility. Its lightweight, cordless design lets you take the lamp from the kitchen to the garden, via your favorite reading corner. A touch-sensitive dimmer lets you adjust the light to three different levels to suit your mood, while a discreet USB charging cable makes it easy to recharge the lamp.

Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. Simon’s designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable and is what describes the products functionality. If you understand the product, it does not need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore, it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them trustworthy. In my design, I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
