The Skyline lamp series designed by Folkform is now being produced by Swedish lighting brand Örsjö Belysning, with blocky forms based on the concrete buildings of a Stockholm suburb.

"Many of our products are inspired by architecture and the graphic expression in buildings," Folkholm cofounder Anna Holmquist told Dezeen. "The particular skyline lamp was inspired by the raw concrete suburb where I grew up, called Vällingby."

The series comes in black and white, made from powder-coated aluminium, as well as brass. "When we chose the brass material we were inspired by the time spent in metal workshops in the south of Sweden," said Holmquist.

Different models of the lamp can be suspended from the ceiling, attached to the wall or bought as a floor lamp with four legs in two sizes.

Originally launched in 2011, the Skyline lamp was shown during this year's Stockholm Furniture Fair and Northern Light Fair and was also presented to the Swedish consort Her Majesty Queen Silvia for her seventieth birthday.

    Hi Anton,

    Thanks for your comment. I’ve tweaked the article to make this clearer.
