Origin: Sweden

Although the majority of Swedish export is based on the production of machinery and vehicles, the country has a long tradition of well designed interior products. This is just as true for their lighting industry where the landscape is dominated by established architectural lighting companies, such as Fagerhult. It’s rare for us to salvage lighting from this region but those we do find are notable for their clean-lined, industrial aesthetic.
