A Lighted Silhouette
Create light, warmth and enjoyment when darkness falls. Light House is an iconic lantern for candles, based on the silhouette of the archetypical Nordic house with added color, style and humor to the familiar and popular product. Light House wishes you welcome like an illuminated landmark in the night.
Light House is the result of playing with various sketches and pictograms of archetypical houses. HolmbäckNordentoft created a very plain design, in which a candle spreads its light from behind large glass surfaces. When darkness falls, Light House remains as a lighted silhouette.
HolmbäckNordentoft tell us: "The inspiration behind Light House results from a typical Danish urban street, where lanterns create light and comfort. Most lanterns are designed in Asia, but we based this one on our own reference framework and the Nordic design tradition, in which plain lines dominate. We kept both function and aesthetics in mind, and made Light House into a miniature version of a real house."
Sebastian Holmbäck and Ulrik Nordentoft joined forces in late 2008, after having spent ten years as independent design professionals, to become HolmbäckNordentoft. They both educated from the Danish Design School in 1999/2000.
“Our field of work span widely. From lighting, furniture and interiors to textiles and complex building components. For us, the primary focus when creating new products, is uniting all the complex aspects of product development, moving beyond the mere visual appearance of the final product. We represent a holistic approach where consideration for the environment, the consumer and economy matters equally.”
