When designers and leading industrial enterprises put their heads together, it usually gets exciting. While such a collaboration allows industry the possibility of demonstrating its special capabilities in a completely new context, its manufacturing processes, conversely, provide an unexpected treasure trove of new design solutions for creative minds. This is what happened in the collaboration between SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH Guss Gruppe and the Berlin-based design studio Formfjord.

'Puzzle' small by Formfjord

The Berlin based designers of Formfjord recently completed this series of glass vases for the German manufacturer Leonardo. All pieces are based on one well-thought-out geometrical detail: Due to their characteristic silhouette – the curved passage between their square foot and the rectangular opening – all pieces fit perfectly together and complement one another. The vases are available in three sizes in white, transparent and silver.

'New Flat' by Formfjord

The Berlin based designers Formfjord produced relief for a problem we all know: The naked light bulb in the freshly furnished apartment creating this unpleasant, cold light until you finally find the right lamp to replace it with. ‘New Flat’ turns the stopgap into a charming lamp. The cardboard lampshade can be sent by post in a A4 envelope as a greeting card.

'Crown' by Formfjord

How to perforate a metal sheet volume without using a costly 3D-laser cutter: Soon, during this year’s light+building in Frankfurt the Berlin based designers of Formfjord will present brand new prototypes of their newest extremely smart lighting project ‘Crown’. In fact this series of pendant lights is producible with more or less common tools. Plane sheet metal is laser cut and canted in the accordant angles. The volume accrues after putting together the two endings and fixing them with two tiny screws. The ribs are cramped by two discs on top. In order to avoid a complicated bicoloured powder coating the designers decided to use a filter which is magnetically fixed on the inside of the lamp shade and lets it shine in a decent colour – coated by light.

'Brina' prototype by Formfjord

The Berlin-based designers Fabian Baumann and Sönke Hoof known as Formfjord created this pendant light made of powder coated sheet metal.

Brina illuminates its own outer surface causing a warm atmospheric light. The integrated smartly folded reflectors cast parts of the light onto the lamps’s body which also underlines its faceted appearance and comprehensible design.
