Formagenda is a lighting manufacturer. The products are handcrafted in Germany and processed to a very high standard. Formagenda works intensely and personally with suppliers and uses “classic” artisan techniques instead of “impersonal” machine processes. “I want people to build a living relationship with our products,” says Benjamin Hopf of his vision for Formagenda.
Formagenda lamps represent emotion and character, a precise form language placed in a new context. Quite simply, Formagenda makes lamps that matter.
The products are never brash or loud, but rather simple, geometrically reduced. The lamps gain their potential as tomorrow's classics not only through their form language, but through Formagenda's intuition for subtle and playful combinations and surprising contrasts that bring seemingly basic forms to life.
With references from different eras or details from the fashion world, Hopf spins a network of associations giving each object its unique character. It's almost like smelling a fine scent that feels familiar yet is fresh and brand new.
Formagenda products evoke memories and deploy a play of associations, both individual and unique. Each of the objects in the collection invites the observer to get involved in the interaction of form and perfectly made material.
