MO lamps

Design by Mads Odgård


The new MO Series is Carl Hansen & Son’s first collaboration with Danish designer Mads Odgård. The series is based on simple shapes that symbolise the comforting effect that light has on people. In their own discreet way, the lamps complement Carl Hansen & Son’s furniture collection and retell the story of Danish design.

How can I create the simplest design? Mads Odgård asks himself this question every time he sits down to design a new product, as he wants to avoid any unnecessary details. That is why he opted for the simplest possible design for the MO Series lamp collection for Carl Hansen & Son.

Mads Odgård based the shapes of the lamps on a research project in which he explores lighting technology in collaboration with Aalborg University and the Technical University of Denmark. Through the project he has learned that light makes people feel safe. He thus realised he had to create a shape for the lamps that would symbolise safety, and the design process resulted in the easily recognisable and simple shapes.

In their own discreet way, the lamps create a sense of comfort from the ceiling, floor, table, or wall when you see them out of the corner of your eye. The simple shapes allow the high quality to shine through and make the lamps complement Carl Hansen & Son’s furniture range in the most natural way.
