Its commitment to sustainability extends not only to our environment but also to ourselves, and our own internal worlds. The brand aims to connects people with products which help them to experience and enjoy life, building a sustainable mindset and helping them to achieve a state of balance. Its newest products are a supreme example of the elegant nudge towards healthier habits and self-care. Explore three exciting ranges here.
This phenomenal lamp was greatly inspired by the atmosphere and energy of the moon. A globe-shaped lamp created with stunning precision, innovative design and exceptional acoustics, Moon provides bespoke directed lighting of the highest quality.
“I’ve given a lot of thought to outer space and the Moon – to the kind of vacuum that exists there. A place with light, yet utterly silent,” says Thomas Bernstrand, designer of Moon.
The acoustic capabilities of Moon are truly astounding. Concealed in the lamp’s housing are two acoustic felt blankets which absorb ambient sound along with the internal air, and its generous shape and scale allow it to absorb high and low frequency ambient noise with maximum efficiency.

A private haven of true acoustic peace, the Zen Pod quiet rooms are an elegant retreat inspired by the inviting simplicity of Japanese design. Accented with welcoming, sympathetic materials such as wood, wool, glass, aluminium and steel, the Zen Pod provides a space to be enjoyed and to catch your breath.
“Zen Pod allows you to sense the surrounding environment without being disturbed by it. The room is quiet; not isolating,” says designer Staffan Holm.
Melting seamlessly into the surroundings, the harmonious design is easy to assemble and a pleasure to use. Find out more about the private acoustic oasis perfect for creating a productive work environment.
