Danish architect Bjarne Urhammer still has a very special place in our hearts. When he approached our founder Kristian Jakobsen in late 2010, looking for someone to take over the production and marketing of his beautiful FLight self-assembly pendants, he unknowingly initiated the process that lead to the creation of our company and journey into the wonderful world of design.
Artist, architect and designer Bjarne Urhammer (1938-2016) is a graduate from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture and has worked for Friis and Moltke in Aarhus and Siemens in Munich. He is also a trained sculptor, educated in Bonn and at Joseph Beuys in Düsseldorf.
Early on Bjarne showed several pieces of furniture which were heavily promoveret by the interior magazine Bo Bedre in 1969-1971. Since then, he has worked with light from a sculptors point of view, creating the lampshade White Clover (later reconstructed and renamed FLight 55). In 2007 Bjarne designed the lamp shades FLigt 28 and FLight 35, which he often refers to as “light sculptures”.
