Beaverhausen’s designer couple Mimy A. Diar and Ad Luijten got the idea for their pendant when looking for a fixture that wouldn't obscure the view from their kitchen. Named after the French word for light—"lumière”—LU contrasts a thin curved shade with a thicker vertical element that visually connects with the lines of plants and trees outside their window. The profile of the lampshade is minimal at eye level but, once seated below at a table, it fills a room with reflected illumination.

“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.”
