designed by swedish studio form us with love as a voluminous illumination shield as well as a modular LED pendant light, ‘hood’ – the sheltering lamp for ateljé lyktan addresses a modern spatial issue. originally showcased at the company’s 2013 market duringthe stockholm furniture fair, the piece meets the basic desire of absorbing the focus of concentrating an illumination source onto secluded areas like work, conference or dining tables. at the same time, the three-piece modular function lets users adapt to any spatial requirements by allowing them to conceive any desired size. starting with basic corner units, one can add the compressed industrial felt sheets to scale the pendant for an extensive ambient form.


‘open areas become the ultimate flexibility, but emotionally it is not always preferred. in scandinavia, most offices are too bare and you only have your laptop screen as your protective shield. hood is built around the emotional value of a shelter, where the intimate room is protected, letting you keep the landscape view‘, says form us with love. ‘the desire to enable people to improve their quality time by creating a room in a larger room, is much more than merely illuminating things. comfort should be for everyone. when you sit under the hood you relax and start to think differently, protected by the form and provided with the warm light you feel at ease’.

  • Love the brilliance it brings to the space. It’s a bit of work to assemble
    For the average mom. Size is perfect and it looks as though its could
    last forever. (Timeless).
