niels bak rasmussen
Born in 1964, Niels Bak Rasmussen is the creative talent behind Danish lighting company, OiOi. Following in the footsteps of so many great Danish architects and designers, Niels grew up in Copenhagen where he attended the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. In addition to spending a year at the prestigious ETSAB school of architecture in Barcelona, he also studied at the Royal Academy’s school of sculpture and school of architecture, the latter of which he graduated from in 1997.
After graduation Niels collaborated on several art installations before concentrating on his career as an architect. Since 2004 he has been running his own lighting company, OiOi, which specialises in bringing new aesthetics and innovation into lighting design.
The Hang On Honey pendant exemplifies his approach. It is an elegant and novel concept with the shade hanging directly on to the bulb. Gripped in place with colour-contrast silicone knobs, the pendant is simple to install and to replace when the user wishes to introduce a new colour.
