Pholc produces modern lighting inspired by Scandinavian design traditions. The lamps have a Nordic “arty” style, where streamlined simplicity from the poetic and scaled back Scandinavian design world meets urban punk.
The brand Pholc was founded in 2015, however, the brand’s roots go much deeper than that. Pholc is in fact the new name given to the brand Lyktan Bankeryd, a traditional lighting brand that has produced lamps since 1962. The brand is still based in southern Sweden, but today has a whole new philosophy and brand profile. The genuine, deep-rooted knowledge and skills regarding lighting remains, but the designs have gone from classic to contemporary.
The vision is to create lighting inspired by Scandinavia, but with a new perspective. Together with a number of talented designers, Pholc designs qualitative lighting that will last years to come. Some of Pholc’s most successful lamps include the Tage and Stella lamp.
