Rappe likes the Norm 69 pendant's thrifty price while also admiring its elegance, calling it “a fabulous house-warming gift for a client with modern sensibilities.” Designed in 1969 by Danish architect Simon Karkov and made by Normann Copenhagen using lampshade foil, the kit is assembled without tools or glue. Two colors and four sizes are offered. Normann Copenhagen, 188.8.131.52.59; www.normann-copenhagen.com.
