The dark Nordic winter is the time to shine for Scandinavia’s many talented lighting designers. Good lighting not only enhances the ambiance of a room but also the beauty of the objects it contains, which affects our mood. Designing with that in mind, Danish lamp specialist Darø has created some of Denmark’s most outstanding lamp designs, including Arkiturbine, this year’s winner of the London Design Award. In the Nordic countries, lighting is not just a serious business – it is an art form, and this is reflected in several of Darø’s designs. Throughout more than 30 years, the company has designed a range of Denmark’s most popular lamps for homes, workplaces and public venues.
