It's quietly ironic that Woud's floating pendant would be a sister light to a table model originally inspired by hot air balloons. Pump's hovering structure certainly seems fit to be airborne, with a puffed-up opal glass shade banded with black-painted metal. And it's a prime reflection of its Spanish designer, Jordi López Aguiló of Kutarq Studio, who takes both a playful and useful stance to turn out objects with a winning hint of personality.

“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.”
