The Northern (formally Northern Lighting) collection available from Funktion Alley specialises in mood lighting and natural inspired designs. Funktion Alley have been proud to offer products from Northern for a number of years now and every time they release new products, we do get rather excited! The brand was founded in 2005 by designer and CEO Ove Rogne and has since established itself as a small yet dynamic Nordic company.   In Late 2017 Northern Lighting changed to Northern as they introduced a range of lifestyle products.  Every piece is inspired by the unique Nordic nature, culture and society, as well as the beautifully unique natural light.

Northern’s creative reach goes beyond their Norwegian heritage to meet the modern need for laid-back luxury and cutting edge cool. Northern’s designs can energies and inspire, create a relaxing mood, or set the scene for a soothing backdrop. Designed with the potential to make any setting unique, Northern’s products add atmosphere as they reveal a new vision for Nordic style. This philosophy is one of the main reasons Funktion Alley were drawn to their unique products and we know that this new selection of lights, you too will recognise this truly special brand and what it’s products could do for your home.

Butterfly Wall Light
If you are looking for something simple, yet elegant, the Northern Butterfly Wall Light could create a bright and warm atmosphere into any space you choose. The Butterfly lamp was designed in 1964. In 2008 Northern Lighting decided to relaunch this Norwegian design treasure. Its uniqueness lies in the combination of simplicity of form and its well-preserved indirect method of exposing light. This year Northern have added dark green to the collection.

The original version sparked a new model made with a perforated metal shade, and according to CEO Ove Rogne this was also partially inspired by an outdoor wall lamp designed by Sven I. Dysthe. It looks simple, but is elegant and decorative as a single item, and is even more so when several are combined in vertical or horizontal groups. Butterfly Wall Light - Perforated is also available in White, Brass, and Dark Green. It is bang on trend right now and will add just that extra bit of something to an entrance hallway! Let’s face it, you couldn’t go wrong fixing this light anywhere in your home!

Snowball Table Light.
The Northern Snowball Table Light is the modern take on the classic Bauhaus lamp, and we couldn’t be more excited to see this unassuming lamp series expanded to new body materials! The Snowball was Northern’s first product (and one of ours) and it shows how Futurist and Cubist styles of the Interwar period continue to appear contemporary today. Designed by one of the company founders Trond Svendgård. Snowball gives out an intimate light. The new base materials include black which almost disappears when the lamp is switched on and brass which will inevitably demand more attention.
