Stockholm-based design studio FORM US WITH LOVE have made some crazy awesome creations, but it’s their incredible lighting designs that have us really lit up!
The studio began its life in 2005 under the helm of Jon Löfgren, Jonas Pettersson, and Petrus Palmér, three designers who met while studying Product Design at Kalmar University in Småland, a county in southern Sweden known to be the heartland of Swedish furniture manufacturing. Fast forward just 7 years later and FORM US WITH LOVE was named by Fast Company as one of the world’s 50 most influential designers shaping the future. Clients include Scandinavian and international brands like ateljé Lyktan, Bolon, Cappellini, DePadova and Muuto. Quite the portfolio.
The HOOD modular pendant (ABOVE) for ateljé Lyktan – a sheltering lamp that creates both room and light.
The WORK LAMP for Design House Stockholm – a construction-style light in gold or chrome-plating that can hang from the ceiling, stand on the floor or lie on a table.
And pushing the idea of the WORK LAMP even further, FUWL made the WORK LMAP VJ installation (ABOVE + BELOW) for the Design House Stockholm’s OPEN concept store in Boda, Sweden. An interactive gold chandelier made from 91 pieces of 24 carat gold, with individual dimmers attached to a separate control table that allows the viewer to create graphic patterns or light moods.
The polypropylene foam YUPIK portable lamp (BELOW for FontanaArte) can stand, lie down or be hung and adapted to any space or need, inspired by the nomadic lifestyle of modern day life.
FORM US WITH LOVE is a truly collaborative studio, where a broad scope of designers can come together to make and create lighting, furniture and products that defy the imagination. Challenging convention, and having a lot of fun doing it. We like that.
