ISKOS-BERLIN ON THE DESIGN
“Under The Bell is not just a lampshade. When hung over a table or in an open environment it creates its own space within the bigger space. That way, the lamp embraces and shelters the table and people beneath it – both physically and in a more abstract sense. The recycled plastic felt even absorbs sound and helps improve the acoustics of your room.”

ON THEIR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
We see design as an art of storytelling. This story is normally quite complex, consisting ofsemantics, morphology, materiality, technology of objects and many other elements. But the clearer your story is, the more likely people are to understand it. The more surprising you make your story, the more likely they are to remember it. And finally the more you make people smile, the more likely they are to love it!
ON NEW NORDIC DESIGN
Time passes, life is going on. Wild flowers of new nordic “muutos” are growing on the roof of the “museums building of Scandinavian design heritage”.It is more than natural – it is life-affirming.
