The movable wood veneer sections of the lamps, full of light and edged with metal, appear to be leaves flapping on a tree branch in a gentle breeze.
Omma is available as a suspension lamp (with two, three, and four leaves), a table lamp (with either one or two leaves), a floor lamp (with a single leaf), and a wall lamp (with a single leaf). Individual leaves rotate to 180º, allowing the user to create a range of lighting moods. The Omma family of lights is available in several wood veneer colours: natural white, natural beech, and natural cherry. The lamp’s metal finishes (used to create the spine and edge of the wood veneer modules) include matt black, matt ivory, and gold.
