BXXLGHT is a design company founded in 2013 by Daniela Upmark in Stockholm, Sweden. They specialise in designing light-boxes which can be customised by changeable letters. There are three rows on each light-box, and the maximum amount of letters is 9 per row on the large ones and 9 per row on the smaller ones.

“New York 2011, that is where I came up with the idea of BXXLGHT. Something felt missing in the Swedish design market. Especially at a time when home decor is the focus and where personal creativity is so important. During a trip in 2011 to New York I came up with the idea of BXXLGHT. I wanted to find art that stood out and that did not have to cost as much as an artwork from a gallery or from exclusive auctions. For each season we will let a creator interpret a light box, which will be available as a limited edition” – Daniela Upmark (CEO and designer for BXXLGHT)
I think these light-boxes are so creative in a simple and modern way, and definitely need one in my future home. Now just to choose what it should say (good thing that I can change my mind as many times as I want)..
Here are some great examples from their Instagramfeed:
Don’t you just love this cute little knitted pouf designed by Swedish design studio Little Red Stuga? The inspiration came from the highest mountain in Sweden, Kebnekaise, which is 2100m and situated in the north.
As they say; ‘if the baby won’t come to the mountain, the mountain will come to the baby…’ (or something like that).
I’m a sucker for products with great packaging design, so when I saw the OATLY carton in the shop I just had to get it. I was even more excited when I found out it’s Swedish and actually tastes good.
The packaging & rebrand of Oatly was done by the Swedish agency Forsman & Bodenfors who treated the packaging as an advertisement space for the brand, playing on the fact that a lot of us do shop with our eyes.
