20-foot tall lamp mumbles Swedish to celebrate the holidays.
Speaking in a low, steady voice, the Talking Lamp of Malmö’s words cut through the cold December air to welcome the holidays to Sweden.
Located in Lilla Torg Square before Christmas, locals and visitors alike count on its steadiness for a holiday visit to the public work of art.
Amidst the snow and darkness of Lilla Torg Square, the lamp provides a calming glow, beckoning families to hear its message since its creation in 2006. At 20 feet, it is not quite the tree at Rockefeller Center, but the symbol of the oversized lamp is always a welcome sight in Malmö.
