Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Christmas Calendar 8/12: Anve

Today's prize comes from Anve, a small Portugese company making unique handmade goods in small editions, inspired by their discovery tours through Lisbon, a beautiful old city full of hidden workshops and warehouses, and also their past lives in places like Berlin, Basel, Vienna, Cape Town and Tokyo. Simplicity and high quality is key.

Anve is offering a chance to win a Laboratorio lamp, worth € 120, made of a vintage borosilicate laboratory flask with a lamp socket in brass, rubber and porcelain and a fabric covered wire. This lamp can be used as a pendant lamp, pinned on the wall, or put on a table. (This lamp comes with a Euro wall plug, so if you live outside Europe, think twice before entering the giveaway.)

To enter the giveaway, just answer this question:

Where would you put your Laboratorio lamp, and what would you match it with?

This giveaway will be open for 24 hours, until 12.00 CET December 9, and a winner will be announced in this post and contacted via email. Good luck!

Update! This giveaway is closed. Congrats Lina! I have emailed you.

  • Jenny says:

    Vi håller på att dra om ALL el i hela lägenheten så i stället för allt kaos så försöker jag hitta snygga lampor - så tack! För den här var verkligen fin. Om min sambo inte misstycker så skulle jag vilja hänga den är i köket ovanför diskbänken (i stället för de ganska hemska spotsen som var där innan). Där matchas den med lite marmor och rostfritt stål och troligtvis ett mörkgrått kök.

  • Nora says:

    I would hang it into my kitchen, there's not really nice light in the evening. I would just match it with the wall, i think it so amazing, it should stay for its own !

    ohhh, i am super-thrilled about this one!! there are so many places where i would fit it in my house... BUT, since i am going to live in small rented studio apartment in oslo for the next half a year, i would really really love to have this lamp as a cosy atmosphere maker. i'd probably put it on my desk and surround it with some pieces from my scandinavian glass collection of various colors.

    man, i really want this one!!

    I tried to post this earlier, but it seems not to have worked. Please ignore this second comment if the first one comes up.

    I would hang the lamp in the large bay window area of my living room. This is my first winter in Sweden and I desperately need more light in my apartment as even when it's daytime, the sun seems to be elsewhere. Accompanying it would be a vine plant and succulents, layered frames & photos leaning on each other and a small squirrel lamp that also sits in the windowsill.

    I would hang this gorgeous lamp above the comfy corner sofa in the lounge. It would be perfect to read underneath, and shed the right amount of light throughout the room.

    As a chemist, and also portuguese,I would LOVE to have this lamp! :)

    I would hang it in my living room, over my 50's honey coloured wooden table. It would bring glass to this part of the room, and coordinate beautifully with my nido chrome and glass coffee table in the sitting area. I love the geeky vintage feel of it, and it would not feel alone next to my vintage maps and black&white photos :)

    I would hang it over my tree trunk, which stands beside my bed and is used as a night stand - so the lamp would function as a night light. I've had this idea for a looooooong time, just with the Muuto pendant lamp, but this one is 10 times cooler and would work a lot better in the room!

  • Leila Tazi says:

    I love it! So simple and basic and has been already done- a very possible DIY potential- but this one is so nice!!! I moved in a flat in London where my bedroom had beautiful old oak floors and amazing industral black radiators with 4 windows- but it was pink- because I'm a student I couldn't risk painting one color and not liking it, or having the tenant chase me around. So I painted the room all white- my linen is white with thin black outline giving it a very hotel vibe; I covered the 4 windows with mosquito-ish curtains along the way and the headboad is the ikea pax system- creating a headboard and a sort of hallway/dressing room on the other side. I bought a black cabled MUUTO suspension which I haven't replaced the tenants children's wood made grey painted "chandelier" maybe because I don't have time- but most certaintly cause I am not totally in love with the muuto susepension. this one has so much more character! I really need to change it because I don't turn on the lights and I have a variator so it would be nice to have this laboratorio lamp hang all the way down from the cieling low close to the bed to accentuate the hight of the bedroom and to make it more visible and dominant in the room! my room is very minimalist/clinical/poetic/ i would love this new addition to truly COMPLETE it i love itttt i want ittttt

    Jeg ville definitivt hengt denne opp i mitt drivhus, som jeg bruker til å dyrke grønnsaker i om vår/sommer/høst, og som vinterhage om vinteren. Drivhuset har alt, bortsett fra en passende lampe. Nå henger det bare en vanlig lyspære der, men en sånn lampe ville vært perfekt prikk over i-en!

    Klassisk og nyskapende på samme tid, noe drivhuset også er. Selve drivhuset er gammelt og har flassende maling, men det som produseres der et nytt hvert år - ingen av grønnsakene ser like ut fra år til år. Denne lampen representerer det.

    I would hang the lamp next to my Wegner chair that is standing all alone in a dark corner. It could use some (spot)light!

    What a tough lamp!!!! What a great giveaway!

    I would lay down or putting him at the bare windowsill so that everyone can admire the lamp directly at entry

    I would hang it over my husband's desk - we've just bought a new white office table. should be very stylish and very Scandinavian ;)

    Jag älskar den där lampan! Finns den att köpa i Sverige? Jag vet att tävlingen är slut men jag skulle såklart ha den i hallen!
