Originally conceived as a
pair of industrial pendants
for a museum in Denmark,
the Keglen series evokes the
look of galvanized steel and
is available in different cone
heights and sizes

BIG ASPIRATIONS

The Bjarke Ingels protégé fleshes out his portfolio

A fascination with robots ultimately sparked Jakob Lange's interest in architecture. "I realized that
in robotics you focus on specific areas, the sensors or movement for example, and what I wanted
was to create complete projects," recalls the partner at Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), which has offices
in Copenhagen, London, Barcelona, and New York. "My strength has always been in my conceptual
thinking. I have this tendency to like solving the more complex problems and coming up with
solutions that engineers would not come up with."
With that in mind, Lange, a native of Odense, Denmark, studied architecture at the Royal Danish
Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, eventually pursuing an internship at PLOT, the now defunct
architectural practice cofounded by Ingels before he established BIG. "It was my awareness of and
interest in the details of architecture, things like window frames, that left me with one hand in the
product design part of our office and the other in architecture," Lange explains.
At BIG, Lange oversees BIG Ideas, the firm's tech-fueled product division first hatched as a way
to deepen synergy between the structures that the firm builds and its interiors. Consider the Tirpitz
Pendant, introduced in 2017 in collaboration with Danish lighting manufacturer Louis Poulsen
for BIG's transformation of a World War II-era bunker into the stripped-down Tirpitz Museum in
Blåvand, Denmark. Refining that industrial-style fixture and exploring "the essence of light" further,
Lange points out, BIG and Louis Poulsen unveiled the Keglen lamp series this year. Fashioned from
spun aluminum, the four pendants stand out for openings that generate ambient light upward, as
well as the gently curved, droplet-like glass inserts, or "bubbles of light" as Lange describes them,
nestled under conical shades.
Other recent BIG launches include the digitally powered, unobtrusive Friday Lock from Friday
Home (billed as the world's smallest smart lock) and the playful, modular Voxel sofa for Danish
furniture brand Common Seating that calls to mind video games. "It almost looks like small pixels of
cushions that are stacked together," says Lange. hd
