The belief of Essey, that function should be representative of natural form, is at the very core of the company and is at the heart of its design philosophy - Symbolic Functionalism. We design functional and beautiful products for everyday life, products that have soul and identity.
From 1969 to the present day, and over three generations, creative, imaginative spirit mixed with self belief produced the high quality tradition of Italian craftsmanship that has marked Crassevig’s name, with tables and chairs appreciated throughout the world and distinguished by their tight, functional form.
In 1924, Poul Henningsen created his influential Paris lamp for Louis Poulsen, and the origin of how we still design to shape light can directly be traced back to his views on the dualities of design and light.
Founded in 1874, Louis Poulsen is a Danish lighting manufacturer born out of the Scandinavian design tradition where form follows function. The function and design of our products are tailored to reflect and support the rhythm of natural light. Every detail in the design has a purpose. Every design starts and ends with light.
