Design studio Gridy was established by two product designers, Wilhelm Grieg Teisner and Lars Olav Dybdal. Both studied at the Bergen Academy of Arts and Design. They created the name ‘Gridy’ by combining their surnames – Grieg and Dybdal. Now based in Oslo, Gridy create functional designs with a strong sense of individuality, which are often underpinned by an element of wit.
In 2011, Gridys’s Spiff lighting design was selected as one of six ‘must see’ lamps exhibited at London’s 100% Design trade fair. The following year, the duo won the Stelton Meets Corian design competition with their Trix candlestick concept. The award-winning Spiff table lamp was added to our collection in 2012, making Flame Gridy’s second design for Northern Lighting.
