cubicle seating design Plenum for Fritz Hansen

‘Inviting Workspaces’ will be showcased within a feature in the London Fritz Hansen showroom, to coincide with Clerkenwell Design Week. The collection sees designs from Jaime Hayon, Kasper Salto, Jørn Utzon, Ahm & Lund and Povl B. Eskildsen.

Utzon Stool: Jørn Utzon
Acclaimed Danish architect and designer of the Sydney Opera House, Jørn Utzon, created the Utzon Stool as a prototype in 1950. This rare piece embodies the acclaimed Danish architect’s love of nature and is formed from oiled beech with brass detailing. It is also the only piece of his furniture currently in production. A
modular principle is evident in the repetitive shapes of the steam-bent legs reflecting his love of nature and its recurring forms.

Clam: Ahm & Lund
Fritz Hansen extends the Clam lighting series with new luminaires for dining and living spaces. The impressive craftsmanship of Clam comes to the fore with a table and floor lamp in the same brushed brass and opal glass as the series’ original pendant light designs. Graceful in both form and function, the new designs fuse tradition and modernity to create beautiful and illuminating statements in a range of settings.

“We worked simultaneously with the silhouettes of all the lamps in the collection, through drawings, models and materials, to create consistency and a kinship between designs,” commented designers Ahm & Lund. “We looked to the contours, proportions and details to ensure that both the table and floor lamps deliver soft, ambient light, softening the shadows in a room and creating a welcoming atmosphere.”

KAISER idell Wall Lamp
The new KAISER idell Wall Lamp is an expansion of Christian Dell’s iconic designs. Adjustable to lighting requirements, the space-saving lamp’s articulated arm, extends into a room to deliver focused yet intimate and variable light where needed most.

“With multiple points of adjustment, the moveable arm of the KAISER idell Wall Lamp brings added functionality to Dell’s versatile series,” said Marie-Louise Høstbo, Creative Design Director – Fritz Hansen. “At the same time the lamp retains all the hallmarks of great craftsmanship, with considered details that are both functional and beautiful.”
