With his highly functional table lamp with its 180-degree range of movement, Danish architect-designer Flemming Lindholdt departs from the usual cliches of task lighting. The choice of colors ranges from sharp black to bold all-over brass to a millennial pink, each inspired in its own way by the 1950s- but translated in cool counterpart tones that reflect current preferences. A silhouette based on the intersection of two circular forms, the base and the shade, and connected by gleaming brass tubing also breaks with the conventional. Flemming's novel concept is brought to life with unerring craftsmanship by the aptly named Copenhagen design brand Made By Hand.

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. "
