The New Classics: Lighting from Rubn in Sweden

Issue 24 · Scandi Midsummer · June 16, 2014

Spotted (and admired) in the Hotel SP34 in Copenhagen: lighting from Rubn an under-the-radar company based in Vittsjo, Sweden. Founded in 1951 by Uno and Osten Kristiansson, Rubn produces a line of hand-assembled lights ranging from humble (simple wall sconces) to high end (large modernist chandeliers), designed by Niclas Hoflin.

A good selection is available at Twenty Twenty One and SCP in London (unfortunately, the lamps are not yet in the US or Canada).
