Product description

During Tent London, 2013 Björn Andersson Studio is presenting a number of new lamps: Cutting Corners – a concept series of lighting fixtures.


Berlin-based Swedish designer and architect Björn Andersson has created a series of concept light fixtures for London Design Festival. The designs are studies of clean geometric shapes and diffused light. The results are beautiful works of art that double as light boxes, pendant lights or mood lights. They can hang from the ceiling, stand on a table or be mounted on a wall. With this series, Björn is launching his new Berlin studio focusing on industrial design and light fixtures.


The design process started with exploring versions of a common basic concept: cutting a corner of a box. The leftover triangles and chipped cubes are inserted with precision-cut Plexiglas. The material is steel and is either left exposed or powder coated white. “Cutting cornes” has been developed in close collaboration with a local metal artist in Berlin. The results presented at London Design Festival are stunning hand welded and polished steel and stainless steel prototypes.


The “Cutting Corners”-series consists of: 1. LIGHT BOX: This precisely cut light box comes in two versions: powder coated white or shiny polished stainless steel. It is perfect for ambient lighting in a window or on a bookshelf. 2. TRIANGLE LAMP: This leftover corner cut from the light box glows with a mysterious light. It creates a unique mood and is perfect on a coffee table or in any office. 3. FOLDED LAMP: This beautiful object is made from one single intricate folded piece of sheet metal. It doubles as a pendant light or table-top object. 4. TWINS: These floor lamps come in two versions. One with the light facing the observer and one turned away generating a indirect and smooth mood light. They brighten up a dark corner of a room. With different heights the composition of the two lamps works perfectly as a pair. 5. STOOL: This powder-coated steel object is perfect as a bedside table or a small stool.
