About

â??Bumlingâ?? means boulder in Swedish, and is used colloquially to describe things colossal or otherwise unwieldy. It is what a friend of the designer Anders Pehrson allegedly called Pehrsonâ??s new pendular lamp when it was first exhibited at the 1968 lighting fair in Gothenburg. The lamp in question was bulbous, bright green and over half a metre wide. This was the birth of Bumling, a Swedish design classic. Despite earning its iconic status in the 1970s, Bumling still looks modern in todayâ??s homes, and represents great Swedish quality and design now as then.
