Imagine a creative force led by original ideas, in a place where traditional design seems like a thing of the past.

Look no further than Northern, a heady hotspot of creative cool. Whether crafted into pendant lights, floor lamps, wall lights, table lamps, candle holders or tea lights, each product we make enhances the quality of ambient light. We create soft lighting that makes their surroundings seem soothing and relaxing, or use diffused glows to create moody tones.

Northern’s products are created in collaboration with designers, tastemakers and innovators around the world. Established in Oslo in 2005, our designs are guided by Scandinavian simplicity and the ever-changing character of the Nordic light. As Northern’s products illuminate interiors throughout the world, our commitment to quality, sustainability and design excellence travels with them. 

Northern was founded in 2005, and has since established itself as a small dynamic Nordic company specialising in the design and manufacture of lights. Northern creates designer lights for different moods inspired by the unique Nordic nature, culture and society and the very special natural light.

The company delivers its creations to commercial projects and retailers in more than 30 countries, always following the same basic values. Northern reflects the fact that it is a young, fun, playful and mood-oriented lighting company, which uses its light portfolio to represent and promote the joy of creative design and the Nordic geographical and cultural heritage within the international design scene. The place of origin explains the choice of the name, Northern – inspired by the company’s positioning on top of the world in the Kingdom of Norway.

Northern is a commercial hub for designers. The people responsible for the generation of these designer lamps include both young up-and-coming talents and recognised designers. Despite their different levels of experience, our designers have one thing in common; they are fiery souls who are fascinated by the mood-creating possibilities of light.
