Romb 48 Table

The Romb 48 Table

Designers Mats Broberg and Johan Ridderstråle, cofounders of Broberg & Ridderstråle Design and Architecture, discovered the rhombus shape of the Romb 48 Table Lamp when they were experimenting with rippled cardboard they use when modelling and developing architectural projects. They made the quadrilaterals in two sizes and stacked the larger hollow form on top of the smaller one so that downlight washes the bottom shape and up-light glows from the top. Though both the tan and white versions of this table lamp fool the eye into thinking they are made of cardboard, they are engineered from durable aluminum in colors the designers call cotton (white) and cumin (tan). The Romb 48 Table requires bolt down installation. Request a Quote

Mats Broberg and Johan Ridderstråle dub themselves creative collaborators within a practice that mixes architecture and design. The Stockholm, Sweden-based duo strives to infuse their designs with an emotional value communicated through the recognition of symbols and meanings. “We often draw inspiration from everyday life,” they say to explain of their point of view; “and try to combine a rational approach with a bit of wit, and the clash between past and present.” Educated at the Konsfstack University College of Arts Craft and Design, they completed their education in the subjects of interior design and furniture design. Given the lauded school’s history for turning out top design talent, it’s no wonder leading international companies world include them in their noted talent pool, such as Global Lighting’s collaborator Zero Interior.

Further proving they have the chops to be in the design stratosphere are the awards they’ve received, including an Elle Decoration Swedish Design Award for Designer of the Year in 2014 and the Elle Decoration DesignPris in 2013. Good Design Awards, Wallpaper Design Awards and DesignPlus Awards are also theirs to keep. Even a passing look at their home page shows they are as comfortable designing furnishings with a down-home appeal as they are the sleekest-of-the-sleek modern pieces. Their Par pendant for Zero Interior is an example of their attention to detail, par excellence!
