The popular Patina in a new edition
In 2020, as we at Klong celebrated 20 years since launching our first products, the idea of creating some sort of jubilee edition was established. We wanted to highlight one or several of our existing products by using our very own, classic, dark red Klong colour. The oil lamps turned out so lovely that we couldn't help but adding them to the collection.
Designer duo Broberg & Ridderståle takes us though the process
“Sometimes the development of a product takes a long time and the design process takes many turns along the way, and sometimes it goes fast. In the end, the results between a long and a fast process can be difficult to measure and compare. Patina is a good example of this. The sketch was done in about five minutes and we were convinced that we had something good going on. Well-balanced proportions, reliance on materials and the use of a classic typology that most people have a positive relationship with; that is the simple foundation that paved the way for the Patina oil lamps."
