The HITI lamps are the first ever lamp collection for FDB furniture,- presented in december 2018 and on the market from 2019. The HITI lamps are produced from FSC certified Canadian Walnut wood and are available in clear and opal white hand blown glass.
The HITI Iamps are designed to touch your emotions. You want to reach out and feel the softness of the bubble form. You relax while imagining the glass bubble to take of like a hot air balloon. The lamps are all about reinterpreting elements from the Danish design tradition and adding emotional design:
‘We were commissioned by FDB to design the first FDB lamp ever and we were inspired by the classic J46 chair by architect Poul M. Volther. We believe that this chair is the most Iconic FDB chair, and we have interpreted elements from it’s construction and reused them in the HITI table and floor lamp.
Standing on a bedside table, a desk or a shelf, the table lamp is one of the most prominent design elements in the home. It is also a practical lamp which provides pleasant illumination. The table lamp complements the floor lamp and the pendants beautifully, but also works extremely well on its own – precisely because it is so distinctive.
The wooden construction holds the glass bobble in a delicate way, like it is nearly flying away. Like a hot air balloon. HITI stands for heat in Icelandic which is characteristic for Iceland and its underground steam.
We use handblown glass and FSC certified sustainable Canadian walnut wood,- quality materials that have long lives. The design is specifically made for low-heat LED light sources and the closed glass bobble is possible because of the limited heat these new light bulbs expose. So in many ways HITI is all about heat.’
The HITI table and floor lamp are designed by Philip Bro in cooperation with Icelandic designer Dögg Gudmundsdottir.
