Danish Lights: 1920 to Now

By Malene Lytken.

Some of the greatest innovations in modern lamp design were made in Denmark

One of the most iconic examples of 20th-century Danish design is the PH lamp, designed by Poul Henningsen in 1925. Combining functionalism with aesthetic innovation, the lamp’s sleek and economical design won a gold medal at that year’s International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts in Paris. Taking this lamp as its point of departure, Danish Lights examines the histories of 100 lamp designs dating back to the 19th century.

By way of its individual case studies, the book provides a detailed survey of the development of lamp design in Denmark, beginning with the advent of oil and gas lamps through to the adoption of incandescent bulbs—the latter of which are associated with some of the most distinctively Danish designs.

With over 300 illustrations, the book traces the history of Danish design’s emphasis on ambience in lighting, due to lighting’s important role in promoting hygge—the concept of a “warm and cozy” atmosphere prominent in Denmark. The centrality of the aesthetic of light in hygge, typified by candlelight, led many of the designers in this book to rethink their adherence to the Nordic functionalist design principle—known as funkis design in Denmark—by emphasizing the crucial quality of hygge in the design of their lamps. This book, the first to focus on Danish lamps, features many of the country’s most prominent designers. In addition to Henningsen, other figures surveyed include Arne Jacobsen (himself the designer of a well-known lamp bearing his initials) and Verner Panton.

The ultimate book on Danish Lights of the last century

The ultimate book on Danish Lights of the last century

Verner Panton's 1970 VP Globe light for Louis Poulsen is reproduced from Strandberg's exquisite new book on Danish Lights: 1920–Now. Clean, buoyant design, substantial texts, lovely paper and printing and a special cover treatment—half-clothbound, half-hardcover—make this a book for any design lover's bookshelf, coffee table or bedside stack. From gas-lit street lights to iconic pendants, desk and floor lamps and chandeliers, this book makes the case for why Danish light design has been so consistently outstanding and influential over the last century. "In Denmark, the light source is so important because we spend so much time indoors," contemporary designer Jonas Edvard is quoted. "Light defines our life. As a result, we might be slightly more persnickety about our light. We are not content with simply having a bright light source placed close to the ceiling in the center of the room; that doesn't work for us." continue to blog
