norwegian design studio permafrost has created a minimalist and versatile task light family for lamp manufacturer luxo. at the core of the new collection — named ‘luxo motus’— is a highly advanced desk light, featuring limitless movement and luxo’s unique asymmetric light output.

permafrost’s involvement in the project has focused on the aesthetic qualities of ‘luxo motus’, repeatedly refining the shapes and curvature of the luminaires. as a result, the series showcases a variety of friendly forms that invite the user to touch and feel the pieces.
the unified design language developed by permafrost makes it easy to combine several motus luminaries in one lighting solution. there are seven different variants distributed on the desk, wall, floor, and ceiling, featuring a flat head for asymmetrical light and a cone-shaped head for symmetrical light. the spring-balanced arm and the 3-axis movement of the head joint enable fluid and effortless movement of the light.
