Curt Fischer founded Midgard in 1919 introducing Germany to an innovative line of lighting. An engineer frustrated by inadequate lighting in his workplace, Fischer invented and built the first movable articulated lamps which were soon adapted to numerous applications at the Bauhaus under Walter Gropius.
NYTA was founded by three German lighting designers who share a genuine passion for their craft: Fabian Maier, Johannes Marmon and Johannes Müller. NYTA’s Tilt pendant’s easy and intuitive handling allows turning and swiveling the shade along its oblong opening in every direction. New to the collection are the clean lines of Pretty Wide, Pretty Large and Pretty Small, each artfully crafted from a single piece of steel, each shape uniquely able to focus light.
Original BTC’s lighting is retrospective and contemporary, industrial and intimate, and especially high quality. Founder Peter Bowles was born into a long history of British manufacturing and through the success of Original BTC, Bowles resuscitated a ceramics factory in Stoke-on-Trent, a metalwork factory in Birmingham, and a nautical outfitter at London Docks. All proudly British-made, hand-assembled in Oxford, and still family-run.
