Being a huge fan of Anour for years I was really happy to add one of their beautiful Divar lamps to my kitchen recently. Since then you probably have seen the three meter wall lamp in a beautiful browned brass several times pictured on my blog and Instagram. Anour is a well established design label by designer and architect Arash Nourinejad who started the label in 2007 to show his work.
It was after introducing the I model made as an accessory to compliment a bed he had crafted at his home during a renovation back in 2012 the brand really took off. With many leftovers from producing the I model, and demands from customers asking for different shapes of suspension lamps above home and office tables.
Arash started exploring the whole lighting range and fulfilling customers dreams thanks to new unique materials, variety of sizes. He opened his own workshop in Copenhagen where the company works until today and designed different models resulting in a carefully curated collection.
I am curious to see what the future for the brand will bring as I really love their unique approach and the place they have in today’s design industry. Collaborating with skilled craftsmen and professionals and production close to home enables them to create beautiful handmade Anour lights, work on new products and introducing new materials such as wood. I am also really excited to hear the brand started to develop their very first furniture piece recently!
One of the things I personally love most recently is finding beautiful Design lighting for my home and I love to show you some favourites from the Anour collection that I wouldn’t mind purchasing next.
T Model Table Lamp is a design by Arash Nourinejad and their first table lamp. I have always find it super stylish, love the minimal look of it and can imagine it at my desk adding a soft light on my work or on one of my sideboards. The lamp also has my most sought after detail whenever looking at any newlamp: an integrated dimmer on the fixture. The lamp is made of metal with an alloy of brass that is polished, tanned or brushed by hand in Anour’s workshop, making every lamp unique.
The Anour I Model Pendant Lamp is a design from 2012. With this lamp, the Danish lighting brand achieved real fame in the design world for the first time. It is a super slim and minimalist design that stands out for its sophistication. Due to the sleek design and use of materials, the design adds elegance and beauty to any space.
This lamp is available up to a length of 3 meters and various smaller lengths up to a minimum of 100 centimeters. In addition to the variant with textile cord that can be connected directly to a power point in the ceiling, there is a “wireless” option without a textile cable, which includes an external driver. Like most lamps, this one is also available in various finishes.
The Anour X Model Pendant Lamp is a variation on the I Model Pendant Lamp, the minimalist design concept is – as the name suggests – placed in an X-shape. If I would have a round table this lamp would definitely be an option!
The pendant lamp that almost seems to float in space is made of copper or brass that can be finished in various ways with matching color textile cord. Also this lamp is equipped with integrated LED that can be dimmed via a small button on the top of the fixture. After having followed the brand closely over the last few years, I really believe that, partly due to the many variations in finish and model, an Anour lamp fits in every type of home.
