The skill and creativity of the hand forms the focus at Örsjö Belysning. It’s the hand that designs, shapes and finishes everything we do.

Situated in Småland, a lush province in the south of Sweden widely known for its tradition of glass blowing and furniture production. It is this place with its ethos of high quality manufacturing that has shaped and continues to shape Örsjö Belysning to this day.

This ethos was certainly evident as we toured the factory. Seeing first hand the skills of their staff as well as their designers including Joel Karlsson, Anna Holmqvist and Jonas Bohlin - all of whom provided insights into the processes, materiality and history which defines the brand.
