The LAMELLA lighting collection is inspired by the delicate pleats on the underside of mushroom caps commonly known as lamella. Modern design and at the same time a timeless classic.
The series is made using the PLICA technique which is an old production technique. LAMELLA is designed by the talented designer-duo Takagi & Homstvedt.
Hallgeir Holmstvedt and Jonah Takagi first met while exhibiting at Salone Satellite in 2011 and quickly bonded over design, biking and beer.
By 2013, they each ran their own studios in Oslo and Washington DC respectively and began discussing potential for collaboration while lamenting the difficulties of managing and running their fledgling design studios.
While they shared similar aesthetic ideas and thoughts on design more broadly, the collaboration sprang from a very practical consideration.
At some point, they found themselves lamenting the fact that many of the American design labels as well as brands championing Nordic or Scandinavian were a bit insular. It was hard for an American designer to work with with brands in Northern Europe and equally hard for a Norwegian to work with American brands.
