Juniper founder and president Shant Madjarian has come full circle. The Montréal native resisted joining his parents’ four-decade-long lighting manufacturing business and spent 15 years as an investment banker in New York. Then, in 2011, bit by the creative rejuvenation of Brooklyn, he went back into the light, so to speak, by launching his own studio, Juniper Design.
The renaissance in design and technologies and chance meetings with early collaborators helped define the brand’s ethos of elegantly spare fixtures achieved with complex and precise inner workings. With industrial designer David Irwin, Juniper produced the M Lamp, a rechargeable update on the traditional miner’s light. The ultra-slender, visually graphic Thin, with Peter Bristol, reinforced Juniper as contender to watch. A widening range of critically acclaimed lighting and burgeoning businesss prompted the move to an expanded facility in Connecticut where much of the line is assembled.
Design is never static. When Copenhagen-based &Tradition was established in 2010, founder Martin Kornbek Hansen's mission was to produce work that was defined by a unique vision, whether it came from Danish legends of the past or young innovators of the future. The roster extends from timeless luminaries such as Verner Panton and Arne Jacobsen to current leading lights Samuel Wilkinson and Norm.Architects to exciting new names Mia Hamborg and Victor Vetterlein. As the company's Kornbek Hansen puts it: "We see a kinship between the old masters, who were avant-garde in their time, and new designers creating the ground-breaking icons of today."
With its library of furniture and lighting extending from the 1930s to the present day, the firm is uniquely positioned to carry on the Nordic tradition of unstinting craftsmanship and adroit use of materials. Nonetheless, &Tradition sees its future in global terms, handpicking design talent and production facilities internationally in an effort to continually produce relevant product and engage a new generation of conscious consumers.
