An opal glass shade recalls maritime gas lamps of old in this compact desk model from &Tradition's Copenhagen series. But the SC15 is resolutely up-to-date, with a customized and energy-efficient built-in LED light source. The lamp's swivel feature puts the light right where it is needed, the source emanating from the finely crafted shade made from mouth-blown glass and mounted on a handsome bronzed-brass base. Light intensity is fully dimmable, from cooler bright white for daytime task work to a warmer illumination for an overall cozy effect.

Design is never static. When Copenhagen-based &Tradition was established in 2010, founder Martin Kornbek Hansen's mission was to produce work that was defined by a unique vision, whether it came from Danish legends of the past or young innovators of the future. The roster extends from timeless luminaries such as Verner Panton and Arne Jacobsen to current leading lights Samuel Wilkinson and Norm.Architects to exciting new names Mia Hamborg and Victor Vetterlein. As the company's Kornbek Hansen puts it: "We see a kinship between the old masters, who were avant-garde in their time, and new designers creating the ground-breaking icons of today."
With its library of furniture and lighting extending from the 1930s to the present day, the firm is uniquely positioned to carry on the Nordic tradition of unstinting craftsmanship and adroit use of materials. Nonetheless, &Tradition sees its future in global terms, handpicking design talent and production facilities internationally in an effort to continually produce relevant product and engage a new generation of conscious consumers.
