The lighting range from Umage
The Umage success story - how it all began
Søren Ravn Christensen founded Umage after accidentally discovering one of his father's lamps in a vintage shop. From then on, his goal has been to create timeless designs that last forever - something Umage has mastered with designs that break the mould. Every design feels bespoke, which fits the company's belief that Umage is a lighting brand with products that allow customers to feel like the designer.
What does ‘Umage’ stand for?
The Danish word Umage stands for effort. Effort to give one's utmost, stick with something and not take the path of least resistance. To always do better and never be satisfied with mediocrity or the ‘norm’. Umage also stands for devoting yourself to constant improvement, attention to detail, leaving your comfort zone, taking a risk, focusing on a goal and doing your best to achieve it. Umage might be a small word - but it’s big on meaning.

The Acorn lamp series by designer Jacob Rudbeck
Designer Jacob Rudbeck is responsible for Umage’s most well-known lamp series, Acorn. For his creation, nature was his muse, with the shade being modelled on the fruits of an oak tree. The pendant light has a modern look as the light bulb - ideally filament - can be seen through the transparent glass shade.
