This elegant but playful floor lamp perhaps best illustrates architect-designer Flemming Lindholdt's concept of fluidity of form in his Petite Machine series. With its idiosyncratic name taken from Danish rock band Kashmir, silhouette reminiscent of the 1930s and a color palette nabbed from the 1950s—but rendered in cool contemporary tones as well as a breathtaking all-brass version—Flemming takes his inspiration from all corners. But the heart of the design is the interaction of two circular forms, the base and the shade, and the functional intersection with the tube and mounting in order to allow 180-degree movement, a flawless example of the Danish craftsmanship tradition.

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. "
