Uno & Östen Kristiansson Table Lamps

Swedish

Swedish designer-siblings Uno Kristiansson and Östen Kristiansson are best known to collectors of vintage furniture for their imaginative lighting and mirrors. As partners, Uno & Östen Kristiansson united high-quality, practical Scandinavian modern design with fresh innovation. 

Uno and Östen Kristiansson were born in southern Sweden. Their father was a furniture maker who owned a workshop — Vittsjo — that was named for the village in which it was located. In 1950, Uno opened his workshop in the same village. He called his company Luxus and brought his younger brother Östen on board as a designer and builder.

Like lots of designers of the era, the Kristianssons favored traditional teak wood but also employed more forward-looking materials such as glass, acrylic, leather and plastic. While their work spoke to the organic forms and craftsmanship that is typical of many Scandinavian modern designers, the brothers created minimalist oak mirrors and shapely pine wall lights — which often featured an integration of rattan — that set them apart from other artisans in their field. 

Around 1966, Östen took over their father’s workshop and renamed it Östen Kristiansson AB. He eventually returned the company’s name to Vittsjo

After 1970, Uno and Östen Kristiansson focused primarily on lamps and mirrors. They designed most of these works in acrylic, and wood became more of a secondary material in their composition. Collectors and interior designers continue to prize the many inventive furnishings they produced.

Located in Vorst, BE
A pair of sculptural table lamps. Lamp foots in turned pine wood, dark stained. Designed by Uno Kristiansson, for Luxus, Sweden, 1970s. Both are punchmarked Luxus - made in Sweden. For E26/27 bulbs.

Swedish designers Uno & Östen Kristiansson, renowned for their lighting and mirror creations, left an indelible mark on the design world from the 1950s to the 1970s. Their distinctive Scandinavian modern style remains highly sought-after in vintage circles. Uno, born in 1925, and Östen, two years later in 1927, likely honed their craft in southern Sweden under the tutelage of their father, who operated Vittsjö Furniture, a business established in 1919. In 1950, Uno founded Luxus in Vittsjö, producing a diverse array of home products, including lamps, furniture, and mirrors, all designed by the brothers. Their collections gained acclaim nationally and internationally, with Luxus introducing a vibrant range of lamps in the 1960s, attributed to Finnish artist Marjatta Metsovaara. Östen presumably took over the family business in 1966, renaming it Östen Kristiansson AB. Though details on its operations are sparse, it likely continued the tradition of craftsmanship. Teak was a favored material for the Kristianssons, though they explored glass, leather, plastic, and acrylic in their designs. Notable creations include the Plafo Ceiling Lamp, UFO Lamp, Model 204 Hunting Chair, and minimalist mirrors reminiscent of Jacques Adnet’s Circulaire...
