Ateljé Lyktan – Eagle & Riff

Eagle
Tham & Videgård’s iconic lamp introduced by Ateljé Lyktan. In 2010, the now world-famous
Treehotel was inaugurated in the village of Harads, close to the Arctic Circle in northern
Sweden. The room Mirrorcube was designed by Tham & Videgård Architects, and is,
as the name suggests, a mirrored cube that blends in and becomes one with the surrounding
forest. The wooden house was to be fitted with a large pendant lamp, and in collaboration with
Ateljé Lyktan’s special tailored service, this led to the creation of the iconic lamp Eagle, a modern
chandelier which is now being put into production. The cube form was not only the source of
inspiration for the wooden room, but also for the lamp, where the cube is folded out into the
form of a magnificent bird. Apart from an iconic pendant lamp, Eagle has also been further
developed into a ceiling lamp, as well as a wall lamp. Indeed, Eagle is a lamp that can be used
in many different environments.

Luminaire Riff
When Olle Lundberg designed the pendant Luminaire Riff,
he wanted to create a flexible and versatile luminaire which
could easily be adapted to different environments. He thought
about how a car is built, where the bottom plate is the common component
of various car models, and what differs them is the expression of design.
The common component of Riff is the so-called light engine, made of
die-cast metal for good thermal management, and with a LED module
and LED protector included, reflecting high quality material in meticulate
detail. Diffusers are also included for an even spread of light. To complete
the luminaire, one of three accessories are added – two are in glass and
another consists of a decorative mould with an extra diffusing plate. The
attachment of the light engine and the accessory is an important part of the
production, and is designed so that other kinds of accessories in different
materials can be added if needed or if the design requires it. Riff comes
in three different sizes and the light engine is painted in black or white.
