Designed as a task light, Study has a streamlined look all its own—with a versatility that makes it as apropos for office desk work as for bedroom reading. Designed by M-S-D-S Studio out of Toronto for Danish brand Woud, the lamp's shell is made of a single cast-aluminum sheet that melds the usual shade and base elements into a single organic form. Finished with a smooth painted surface, it comes in white or dusty peach for an accent pop.

“We wanted a challenge,” say husband and wife Mia and Torben Koed, founders of Copenhagen-based Woud, and they got one. Sitting around the dinner table a couple of years ago, they realized it was time to leverage their experience in private-label furniture and create something of their own. In just a few short years, they’ve masterminded one of the most influential Danish brands around.
Now adding accessories to the mix of furniture and lighting, Woud expands on the essential simplicity of Nordic design with an emphasis on finely crafted function and startlingly original form. Embracing upcoming design talents, both from Denmark and abroad, the couple is also keen on finding new materials that fit the Scandinavian tradition. Ultimately, they say, “We believe timeless design can express personalities, inspire people and create beautiful homes.”
