With a sleek matte-black profile, Cono also offers the ease of an articulated lampshade to point the light right where it is needed. Danish maker Woud teams up with a fellow countryman, flighting designer and manufacturer Benny Frandsen on the timeless minimalist series. To place by the bed or above a desk, the wall lamp’s geometric look is reflected in its name, taken from the mathematical term “conoid” for cone.

“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.”
