Made in Sweden

The story of Markslöjd begins in 1963 in Sweden, with local craftspeople in and around the small town of Skene. Our production was of small scale, consisting mostly of wooden crafts and lighting.

Fast forward to 2019 with a production of larger scale and far away from home - we longed to find a way back to our Scandinavian roots. Our journey in search of production closer to home began, while fulfilling a dream to honour our heritage and history.

Teaming up with designer Joakim Thedin, we present two products made entirely or substantially in Sweden, in a limited edition of 250 pieces each.

Pater

The Pater table lamp is a tribute to our history of lamp bases in turned wood, but with a modern twist designed by Joakim Thedin.

The base is crafted of solid oak, giving each piece a slightly unique look. The elliptical shade in opal almost appears to be floating on top of the base, while delivering a comfortable, ambient light. Combining the graceful glass and the sturdy base creates a bold, yet timelessly elegant Scandinavian design. The lamp comes with a cable that has a braided textile layer, making it an interesting detail of the design.

Pater table lamp is an eye-catching piece of Scandinavian design, easy to place in any home. Limited edition of 250 pieces.

Amfi

The Amfi table lamp is a result of blending traditional craft with modern methods of production. Designer Joakim Thedin found inspiration in ancient amphitheaters and worked with circular shapes to achieve the architectural look.

Amfi has an opal glass shade resting on the base while lending a soft, ambient light in the room. The base is crafted of wooden composite material Valchromat, coloured throughout in dark grey and with visible natural wood fibres on the surface. The lamp comes with a cable that has a braided textile layer in black and white, making it an interesting detail of the design.

Limited edition of 250 pieces.
