Nordic Heritage Powered by Innovation

Craft, sustainability, function and form are central to classic Scandinavian design. &Tradition aims to bring these principles to the future of lighting—exquisitely bridging old and new worlds. Established in 2010, the Denmark-based design company has developed an impressive library of lighting that spans from the 1920s to present day. The brand is well known for producing iconic designs by Verner Panton and Arne Jacobsen, in addition to working with modern day masterminds like Jaime Hayon.

While faithfully staying true to its Nordic roots, &Tradition challenges the boundaries of innovation. Every new product is a chance to redefine design processes, experiment with new materials and forms, and embrace the latest manufacturing techniques. At its core is an unwavering respect for nature and raw materials.

 

Uniting the Leaders of Lighting

&Tradition isn’t just a design brand; it’s a platform where the designers of yesterday and tomorrow intersect. In addition to working with established masters, &Tradition is adept at identifying emerging icons, such as Andreas Bozarth Fornell, former in-house architect for Swedish fashion brand Acne. For his streamlined Fornell lamp, the virtuoso drew inspiration from the worlds of art and fashion.

From Verner Panton’s 1969 peace, love and harmony-infused FlowerPot Table Lamp to Jaime Hayon’s futuristic and energy-efficient Passepartout Lamp, the lighting range is varied and dynamic. Elegant shapes are modernized with innovative materials and finishes, giving luminaires like the Utzon Pendant by Sydney Opera House architect Jørn Utzon, a sense of contemporary appeal.

Keeping design icons alive in the hearts and minds of new generations, &Tradition often revives classic luminaires. In homage to Arne Jacobsen’s architectural Bellevue projects, the 2017 Bellevue Lamp retains its signature swan neck and 45-degree shade. The graceful silhouette exemplifies the minimalistic forms of the Danish Modern movement yet a new mix of colours and materials keeps it fresh.
