When FORM US WITH LOVE moved to its new premises in Stockholm it turned to ateljÃ© Lyktan to develop a light for its conference table. Designed to be both a light source and a sound barrier in the vast studio space, the piece, called Hood, forms a halo over the table, catching loose sentences in its thick felt. â€œWe want it to be a modular system with the possibility of growing however big it needs to be,â€ says Petrus PalmÃ©r, John LÃ¶fgren and Jonas Pettersson of Form Us With Love. The light is made up of separate felt panels that are assembled on site, making it a flat-pack product.
The 77-year-old lighting manufacturer ateljÃ© Lyktan has classics like Anders Pehrsonâ€™s 1968 pendant lamp Bumling in its archives. Over the last year ateljÃ© Lyktan has taken a different approach to manufacturing, going back to its roots and highlighting the made to measure service that it was traditionally known for. The venture is called AteljÃ©n and here a team of designers and craftsmen are available to develop lighting solutions for the contract market. Form Us With Love started working with ateljÃ© Lyktan a few years ago with the LED light Ogle, which combines the function of a spotlight with the elegance of a pendant lamp.
“Hood” for AteljÃ© Lyktan was presented during Stockholm Design Week 2011,Â together with new products and projects by Form Us With Love & Friends in a hidden away church.
