Globe serie by Emil Thorup For Handvark

The Globe Series by Emil Thorup for Handvark was inspired by the Bauhaus movement, where form follows function and The Globe Series embraces every element in a lighting fixture. Where many other designs go to great lengths to hide the electrical cord, the cords are a piece of the design, adding a much anticipated organic and feminine touch to the black coated steel frame and the balancing mouth blown grey glass globes. As a family of both a chandelier and floor lamp, the Globe Series is a versatile lighting series for both residential and commercial use.

“Aesthetic sustainability is key to all of our products. In an effort to create furniture that will last a lifetime, we have taken no shortcuts. We work with genuine marble, brass and aniline leather – materials that will only become more beautiful over time. These materials are worked with care and dedication to embody the simplicity and applicability of our design. Design that above all stays true to the Nordic DNA that imbues HANDVÄRK.” says co-founder Emil Thorup.

“HANDVÄRK is much more than a business to us. We believe in simplicity, sustainability and social responsibility on a personal and corporate level. We make sustainability a natural part of our everyday work, we flat pack to reduce transport emission, we only use recyclable packaging and have a strong digital presence to minimize print. Simply put; we strive to stay socially responsible, establish long-term partnerships and have an overall positive impact on the world.” says Kristian Rhode, Handvark co-founder.
