Exclusive plexiglass and brass lamps reminiscent of Italian design from the 1960s, French Art Nouveau and the modernism of the German Bauhaus, that must be the work of Vibeke Fonnesberg Schmidt. The Danish designer develops lamps that combine art, craftsmanship and design.
Vibeke Fonnesberg Schmidt studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design and now builds her lamps by hand in her studio in central Copenhagen. All of them are made of plexiglass in different sizes of translucency. A Danish manufacturer, also based in Copenhagen, casts and cuts the material. This makes it possible to offer the lamps and chandeliers in customised colour combinations and also the suspension system can be completely custom made. The lamps are real works of art, whether they are on or off. When switched on, they generate a new range of nuances and offer a glimpse of the structural framework to which they are attached by the translucent layers.

The passion for geometry and systems that Vibeke works with can be seen in the smallest details. Working with plexiglass gives her the ability to control the light by creating the way it is placed and a range of colours. The lamps have a complex sculptural tactility as the plexiglass folds and unfolds in a carefully choreographed practice where mathematics and art intersect. The interplay of geometry, light and material makes Vibeke's lamps so recognizable.
Vibeke Fonnesberg Schmidt has worked with many world-famous partners in recent years, including the Nilufar Gallery and Dimore Studio in Milan, as well as leading international interior designers.
A sublime aesthetic and a poetic and coherent unity are the best translation for the lamp designs by Vibeke Fonnesberg Schmidt.
