Aligning with Made by Hand’s guiding credo of fine craftsmanship and understated luxury, RO extols simple materials like textured jute and forged iron. Danish designer Kim Richardt wraps the floor lamp’s cylinder shade with the natural yarn and mounts it on black powder-coated legs, in a nod to old craft traditions in Denmark from the 1950s. Inside the lamp shade, the brass reflector allows only small cracks of light to peek through the jute yarn, creating a coziness evoked by the name RO, for the Danish word for calmness and a feeling of well-being.

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. "
