W2 is the perfect-size smaller pendant from the iconic Workshop series first designed in 1951 by Axel Wedel Madsen. Originally conceived as a necessary light for workspaces and now relaunched by Copenhagen's Made By Hand, the minimalist aluminum shade has long been a fixture in homes, schools and offices. Hand-crafted by skilled workers, the aluminum shade is notable for its sturdiness without excessive heft. Pick a bright pop with one of the crisp accent colors or go "mod" with a matte or shiny version in black, white or grey. Or choose a metallic bent with silvery lacquered aluminum or a copper version with a reflective white interior.

Made By Hand
Living up to its name, this young Danish design brand debuted at the Stockholm Furniture Fair with just a single product. “After almost a year of preparation, we relaunched the classic Danish workshop lamp from 1951, remade by hand by the original skilled craftsmen—with their techniques from the 1950s—in the original workshop in Denmark,” says Thomas Baldur-Felskov, cofounder and partner.
Made by Hand celebrates fine craftsmanship and understated luxury in the Scandinavian tradition. Guided by a passion for natural materials and timeless functionality, Thomas likens the company's prevailing aesthetic to a white T-shirt. “It should go with everything, from a simple space to a more luxurious setting,” he says. New additions are painstakingly developed with an eye on lasting authenticity. “We don’t feel obligated to bring out new products every year. "
