The official birthday of Carl Malmsten‘s floor lamp is 1941. But it can be seen already in a blurred photograph from 1928, and together with the chair Lilla Åland it is the item by Malmsten that has been in continuous production for the longest time. A stylish standard lamp with an ingenious adjustable arm. What is it that makes a classic? Perhaps you can reply like the architect and proponent of functionalism Uno Åhrén when he reviewed Carl Malmsten’s slatted furniture in the 1940s: “There is nothing remarkable – and that is exactly what is so good.”
