At the end of the vast flat lands of southern Sweden, at the edge of the Baltic Sea, lies the small town of Åhus. This is the setting for ateljé Lyktan, a lighting manufacturer with an 85-year long history and an archive of lights that have defined Swedish design over the last century. But ateljé Lyktan is not resting on its laurels. It is busy creating the next generation of lighting.

Working with a host of renowned contemporary designers, ateljé Lyktan designs, develops and manufactures luminaires for outdoor and indoor environments. They all take shape here in the 12 000 sqm factory, overlooking the farmlands of southern Sweden.
