with the new ‘ohm’ collection, the swedish studio kauppi & kauppi celebrates the material, production and the century-long heritage of ifö electric, scandinavia’s only factory producing pressed porcelain. the inspiration from industrial porcelain resulted in a collection of light fixtures for walls, ceilings and tables.

‘we were seduced by the fascinating soft shapes of insulators and connection boxes, some of the first products manufactured by the company. we wanted to bring these silhouettes back into the assortment by creating something new that would carry some of their identity. the fascination was not only a matter of aesthetic — the soft shape proved to be highly functional for both bases and glass with great ability to diffuse light’, explains nina kauppi, one of the two designers.

in addition to ifö electric´s traditional range, kauppi & kauppi has also designed the first table lamp in the company’s history with the aim to enable a closer relationship to the luminaries. contrary to the ohm collection of fixtures for permanent installations, the added family member is designed for flexible use within an arm’s reach, on tables, next to a bed or in a window.
