C.F. Møller Architects is one of Scandinavia’s leading architectural firms, and has been responsible for a range of award-winning projects in the Nordic region and worldwide since 1924. The firm’s design department, C.F. Møller Design, is behind a broad variety of design solutions in the form of products, furniture, building components, interiors and more.
In the early 2000s, C.F. Møller Design entered into a partnership with Lampas. This resulted in the Quintus range, which has been re-introduced in 2020 as a revitalised LED version.
Jon Brøcker, Head of Industrial Design, explains that C.F. Møller has always had an interest in working with light – and always based on architecture and the life lived within and between the buildings.
“The importance of good lighting in terms of creating rooms, mood, orientation and safety can almost never be overestimated. Especially not at our latitude, where the days are short for a large portion of the year,” he says.
“We aim for solutions that are long-lasting – in both a physical and mental sense. This comes into play in terms of both quality and form. It’s good for lights to have a touch of character and edge, but at the same time they must be simple enough to blend with their surroundings. They need to stand up to being constantly on view both from a distance and up close, in daylight and darkness and in numerous different settings – today and 10 years down the line,” he says.
C.F. Møller Design bases its work on Scandinavian design traditions and aims for a simple and distinct look.
“In addition, we are very conscious that the items we produce should match up to comparable products. That function, aesthetics and quality must be top-class at the right price, goes without saying. Furthermore, we strive to ensure, in close and constructive dialogue with Lampas, that the products are manufactured as sustainably as possible and with a minimum of maintenance and operating requirements,” says Jon Brøcker.
C.F. Møller has a team of around 300 employees. Its head office is in Aarhus, with branches in Copenhagen, Aalborg, Oslo, Stockholm, Malmö, London and Berlin.
