Name: Hood

Designer: ateljé Lyktan

Location: Sweden

ateljé Lyktan is a Swedish company that designs and manufactures innovative indoor and outdoor lighting pieces. Their designs incorporate the latest technologies and work well in residential and commercial spaces.

Hood is a suspension lamp that was born out of necessity. The designers needed a flexible lamp that would absorb loud noises and act as a sound barrier for their new studio. Hood does both of these, all with a fresh and modern aesthetic.

The lamp is constructed of a lacquered aluminum paired with molded felt shades that come in black, light gray, dark gray, sand and red. The shades are designed with modularity in mind in that the user can customize the size of the lamp to their needs.


About the Author – Kyle Troutman

I was used to being around his closest contractor buddies and making the usual Home Depot trips with him on the weekends. So, instead of becoming a designer (or even an architect), editing and following design trends became my passion. I’ve worked at Country Living magazine, founded and edited a men’s magazine at my college, and now work in design PR.
