Collection: Anders Pehrson


Karl Anders Pehrson (1912 in Göteborg - 1982) was a Swedish industrial designer of lights in Scandinavian design. His style is assigned to the mid-century modern.

After studying engineering in Göteborg, Pehrson worked from 1952 to 1963 as a design manager and designer at AB Philips. From 1963 to 1978 he headed the Ateljé Lyktan (German: Atelier Laterne) in Åhus, where he focused on lighting in public and industrial environments. Pehrson's works Skrivbordslampa, Golvlampa, Supertube and his most famous design Bumling are exhibited in the Swedish National Museum. Bumling (German: [Fels-] Brocken) from 1968 developed into a Swedish design classic and was built in six different sizes. The metal body of the lamp was available in a variety of colors and was soon internationally successful. For the 1972 Summer Olympics, the atelier supplied 16'300 table and floor lamps of type number 591 and number 781 Simris for the interior lighting of the Olympic Village in Munich. Anders Pehrson designed the original models in 1964. In relation to the number of pieces, this was the largest order in the company's history of his studio.
