W1 is a miniature model of the iconic Workshop series, a familiar beacon in Danish design history. Originally conceived as a work light by Axel Wedel Madsen more than a half-century ago in 1951, the aluminum-shaded light has been carefully relaunched by Copenhagen's Made By Hand. Produced by exacting craftsmen, that shade has a reassuring weightiness without seeming heavy. In delightful accent colors to bring a brightening touch to personal spaces, it also is offered in crisp black, white or grey in a choice of matte or shiny finishes. Or shine it on with silvery lacquered aluminum or the metallic 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. "
