Eva Solo creates exclusive, Danish-designed furnishing accessories and kitchenware characterised by aesthetic appeal, functionality and high quality. Tools which are a pleasure to look at, use and own.
The history of the company dates as far back as 1913, but the Eva brand had its major breakthrough in 1952 with a bread and meat slicing machine that went on to become a design classic. The first of many. Today, the products are divided into several collections which are marketed worldwide. But the essence is still the same: aesthetics, functionality and quality.
Lightyears takes pride in creating luminous lighting products that combine tradition and renewal. The core ambition of our collection lies in the fusion of the young and the established. We love the curiosity and boldness of the up-and-coming generation, and we respect the skill and the trained eye of the experienced designers.
This collection offers modern interpretations of everyday lighting products, and we hope that our collection can shed light on new takes on how and where to use contemporary illumination. This season we proudly present three new lamps created by some of Europe's most renowned and talented designers. We hope you'll love them as much as we do.
