Design House Stockholm
The Design House Stockholm Story
Design House Stockholm was founded in Sweden's capital by Anders Fardig in 1992. Its original focus was creative product development for a range of different brands. In order to do so, Design House Stockholm accrued a large network of independent designers.
Why We Love Design House Stockholm
With this platform in place, Fardig developed and launched his own line of home accessories, furniture, lighting and fashion in 1997, starting with the Design House Stockholm Block Lamp. Since then, Design House Stockholm has functioned much like a publishing house, encouraging freelance designers to submit their ideas. So far, dozens have succeeded.
Noteworthy Products from Design House Stockholm
The Design House Stockholm Work Lamp replicates the hard and tumble form of a garage trouble light. But it is suited much better for gentler indoor use, with a gleaming Chrome or 24 karat Gold-plate wire cage. Meanwhile, the Design House Stockholm Block Lamp, a customer favorite, plays with contrasts and the archetypes of modern society by placing a smaller bulb within a block of glass with a larger bulb shape.
In Their Own Words
"Don't make something unless it is both necessary and useful; but if it is necessary and useful, don't hesitate to make it beautiful." - Anders Fardig
