Note Design Studio roared to the forefront of design after its founding in Stockholm in 2008. It might have something to do with the name the five partners gave themselves—“To note something, to get noted: we are named after what we try to achieve.” Focusing on an attention to surroundings, the designers of Note declare their aim is to create things that will inspire other designers to do the same. By looking at what is unique in every project and emphasizing this uniqueness, they hope to transform non-material values into tactile objects and spaces.

Their work crosses disciplines from architecture and interior design to product design, graphic design and design strategy. The Silo pendant, which they designed for Zero Interior Lighting, is amongst Global Lighting’s savvy Swedish offerings to North America, and if the design of the notable fixture is any indication, they are right on target to carry out their aims. One look at the number and variety of products on the home page of their website make it clear the breadth of their design talent knows no bounds.
