Scandinavian charm meets German design history: Our new KUULA table lamp
Our vision for the world of living room furniture is beautifully enhanced with the curvaceous new KUULA globe light. The spherical, hand blown glass luminaire, perfectly balanced on a sleek aluminium base, is reminiscent of the kind of lamps that traditionally grace Nordic windowsills, while at the same time it honours the timeless essence of Bauhaus design. By virtue of a long history of collaboration, we have a close philosophical connection with the Bauhaus school of design. Now, through designer Uli Budde, we have posed a question: if the designers of that iconic era were to explore the aesthetic and functional properties of a lamp using today’s technological possibilities, what might be the result?
As experts in the construction of furniture, we were conscious of needing a skilled and creative partner within the lighting industry in order to realise this sophisticated project. Key values such as the sustainable handling of resources, the highest standards of quality, excellence in craftsmanship and superior technical competence created a fluent connection between us and chosen partner Oligo. The German lighting manufacturer is based near Bonn, where the company manufactures products with a high degree of handcrafting.
