Kalmar Werkstätten celebrates the historic lighting manufacture Kalmar. Since the project's launch in 2009, Kalmar Werkstätten has issued designs based on drawings found in the Kalmar archives and selected for today's residential and commercial interiors. Specifically these lamps, chandeliers, and sconces spotlight the Secession and Wiener Werkstätten, movements in which the company was intimately involved, thanks to working relationships second-generation owner Julius Theodor Kalmar had established with the great talents including Josef Hoffmann and Adolf Loos. They rediscover Austrian modernism's directness of form, honest expression of industry and craftsmanship, and dedication to time-honored materials - and are contemporary heirlooms in their own right.

Collaborating with a choice group of emerging and established talent, Kalmar Werkstätten is releasing light fixtures whose designs are chosen from the Kalmar archive and adapted for today's residential and commercial interiors.
