Bob Light XL Pendant – Thomas Bernstrand
Bob Light XL Pendant zero lighting by ZEROlighting.
It started with a modular sofa system integrated light fixture. And the latter had the same pleasantly rounded shapes of the former. After that, more and more members joined the Bob family, including a floor light, a solo pendant and a bow that waves through the space. And now, a really large pendant, Bob XL: 400 mm in diameter. Incorporated LED module with Dali option. 14W/955LM.
Zero Interior was founded in 1978 with the vision of making unique light fixtures for a design-interested audience.
These products, in combination with a deep understanding of how best to illuminate public indoor and outdoor environments,
is at the heart of Zero’s identity. From the start, their creation of unique environments has been praised in
both Sweden and abroad, thanks to their guiding principles: quality, environmental care and innovation.
Their local roots and manufacturing have built long-term relationships with customers and suppliers that are vital to them.
More than 80% of manufacturing takes place within roughly 200 km of Nybro in Småland and all assembly occurs in their workshop in Nybro.
Design Bernstrand & Borselius
Educated at Konstfack, University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm, Sweden 1994-99, and at Denmarks Designskole, Industrial design in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1996.
He has arranged and been taking part in several exhibitions all over the world and has received several awards and grants for his work. Thomas Bernstrand has also worked with architectural- and interior design projectsfor both private homes and public environments.
Stefan Borselius was born 1974 in Malmö. Educated at the Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design. He attended Carl Malmstens school and Steneby school, and studied furniture carpentry and design.
Stefan Borselius is an ingenious designer with a head bursting with ideas. He can be quiet and thoughtful, but when he speaks out he’s quite the verbal gymnast, an art he balances with being an equally inventive and an aesthetically pleasing designer.
Stefan’s choice of career was inspired by his grandfather and great grandfather who were both skilled furniture carpenters. Stefan prefers to call himself a carpenter, and he believes that hands, thoughts and precision are all important tools of his occupation. Right from the function and material of an object through to the final product, Stefan wants to create furniture for our time and our way of living, our here and our now.
When he works with a product, Stefan Borselius leaves nothing to chance, but goes methodically and whole-heartedly through every single detail, every function and every characteristic which a material or a technique can offer. He pushes the boundaries of what is possible to produce, and would rather give up and pursue another route than not produce anything at all. He leaves no stone unturned in his quest for a solution.
As a result, his products have a strong sense of identity which already answer unasked questions in their strong expressionism.
