Black + Blum is an Anglo-Swiss partnership who joined forces in 1998 and based themselves in London, the European heart of design. As a design consultancy they advise companies on any creative aspect. This accumulating insight into different markets catalysed the decision to develop their own range of products.
Launched in 2010, the Plumen family has expanded to include two designs of energy efficient light bulb and five colours of Drop Cap Pendant Sets.
The Plumen 001 was awarded the Brit Insurance Design of the Year by the Design Museum in London and the prestigious Black Pencil at the D&AD awards in 2011. It is included in the permanent collections of MoMA, the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Smithosonian Cooper-Hewitt Collection, The Art Institute of Chicago and the Design Museum in Helsinki.
Offecct was founded in 1990 by CEO Kurt Tingdal and Design Manager Anders Englund, and is situated in Tibro, Sweden
Offecct has grown rapidly to become a major furniture manufacturer with high design ambitions, which is particularly evident in the many international design awards that Offecct has received over the years. Offecct believes that qualitative, innovative and sustainable design creates interiors that have a positive impact on people - in meetings, at home and at work. Offecct works closely with some of the world's most renowned designers.
