The sofa with specific chosen pillows and maybe a handmade quilt surrounded with chairs and tables designed back in the days all mixed up with new finds as well as thriftstore treasures gives a cosy feeling. Add some pictures, plants and rugs and you have a great nook where you can charge your batteries after a long work day.

Ateljé Lyktan and the Bumlings

”Good lighting is not always lots of light, but always several light sources”  85906700

Anders Pehrson 

These are the words of Anders Pehrson. Anders Pehrson took over the company in 1964 and this was the beginning of a more industrial sense in the history of the company, which dates back to the early 1930’s. His philosophy of furnishing a room with many different lighting points resulted in a wide range in which groups of product families were very important. He would speak about the four important Fs: Form, Funktion, Färge and Familie (in Swedish),  (Form, Function, Colour and Family) His biggest success Bumling was one of his many classic products.

bumling

‘Bumling’ means boulder in Swedish, and is used colloquially to describe things colossal or otherwise unwieldy. It is what a friend of the designer Anders Pehrson allegedly called Peh- rson’s new pendular lamp when it was first exhibited at the 1968 lighting fair in Gothen- burg. The lamp in question was bulbous, bright green and over half a metre wide. This was the birth of Bumling, a Swedish design classic.
