At the beginning of the 20th century, the first attempts were made at shading the hitherto much-used, naked incandescent  lightbulb. Simple pendant downlights known in Sweden as cobblers’ lamps were common in Swedish homes and were the very first indoor luminaires used in Sweden. The oldest luminaires were made in sheet-metal and their appearance is assumed to derive from the kerosene lamp.

 

During the 1930s and 40s, ateljé Lyktan produced several different models of the Shoemaker bearing Hans Bergström’s signature. Olle Lundberg found his inspiration to create Cobbler among the thousands of sketches and drawings in our archives.

 

Cobbler is a modern luminaire with historic features, equipped with shades in spin-formed aluminium and fitted with modern cold cathode fluorescent lamps to provide a broad, warm light pattern.
