What defines a Swedish design lamp?
For many in the industry, a Swedish design lamp is a lamp designed by a Swedish designer. The fact that it then says "made in somewhere else" on the lamp is not so accurate.
We can arrange spare parts for almost all luminaires in the range from Bsweden, Blond, Örsjö & Zero lighting, in some cases even for expired models. The easiest way to make your request for a specific fixture and spare part is via our contact form or to email@example.com .
Products (lamps) must be used. Good products must be designed to be used and to last, not just exist to be the latest in someone's collection. If products just are, they wouldn't be.
Good design inspires & always has a purpose. Really good design has the potential to develop and inspire people, to develop even better creations. The purpose of a product can transcend itself but it cannot be left to chance, nor can it be merely decorative. A decorative product is at best art, but most likely it is kitsch or just junk.
Good design is honest design. A product should never claim to be more than it is. However, it can be more than it claims to be.
Good design is complete, in every aspect & in the smallest detail. Narrow choices down to the smallest detail must be made. Not only for the product to function optimally and clearly communicate its reason, but also to be completed so that from all aspects it leaves a minimal environmental and climate footprint.
Good design is timeless. Well-designed products should never appear as trendy objects, but if a creation appears timeless and does not breathe the era, it will always feel contemporary.
Innovation is not a must... The wheel works but there are still things to improve from a smart, sustainable and timeless perspective. In today's wear and tear mentality, timelessness in itself can be innovative. However, innovation in its true sense is always a big j###a plus.
All design must strive to improve humanity in its journey. A good product has no best-before date, it never becomes unusable, it doesn't break and it's never thrown away. Perfection only exists in theory, of course, but the scientifically sacred goal is to get as close to perfection as possible. Proper design helps us consume less.
