Unfold Pendant Light - Quick Ship
The rigid frame of the archetypal industrial pendant is reimagined in soft silicone. It's a modern spin on a classic by the Swedish dudes from Form Us With Love for the Danish design group Muuto, and in a selection of colors that almost begs for more than one lamp to be presented in the same space. The new material also allows for the lamp to be easily folded, also making this a thoroughly right essential for our contemporary, shifting lifestyles.

Muuto made its impact on the design world by living up to its namesake "muttos,” the Finnish word that alludes to looking at things with a new perspective. "We give the designers the freedom to create new designs,” says co-founder Peter Bonnén. By giving free rein to the brightest design talent in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark, there’s the breathing room to conjure a new take on a chair, vase or a lamp. Expanding on that success, Muuto was subsequently acquired by legendary brand Knoll In 2017, though it continues to be run independently from the company's headquarters in Copenhagen.
Peter and co-founder Kristian Byrge, who originally trained in economics and management respectively, might not have seemed destined to helm a new-influencer design firm. But it was a shared passion for all things design and and the distinctive style they dubbed “New Nordic” that rapidly brought worldwide recognition. "It serves as proof that we have something special to offer the design industry," the partners say. "We're proud to be part of the Knoll family and can't wait to unfold Muuto's global potential further in close collaboration with them."
Form Us With Love
"We are hopelessly influenced by our strong design heritage of course, but at the same time we are utterly tired of it. The result is some kind of tweaked functionalism," say the trio known as Form Us With Love. John Löfgren, Jonas Pettersson and Petrus Palmér originally met as students in the same product design class at the university in Karlmar, Sweden. From the spacious Stockholm studio which also hosts exhibits from time to time, they now turn out their own take on modernism, achieved with a light hand and often an underlying humorous tone. As part of a new generation building Sweden's design legacy, they say, "It's great to see so much creativity spire among the young Nordic design community, with an ambition to investigate new genres, materials and expressions."
Form Us With Love's output includes furniture and lighting for several internationally recognized design companies, including Canon, Design House Stockholm, Muuto, Philips and Stockholm Furniture Fair. The studio has been honored with numerous design awards, including Red Dot, Young Swedish Design Award and an I.D Magazine citation.
