Sofie Refer (b.1974) is a Danish designer who graduated from The Danish Design School department of Product Design in 2003. She is partner and Creative Director of Refer + Staer Aps, a Danish design lighting company and her designs play with Nordic simplicity in a more extravagant way. Lighting design is her passion and she is fascinated by light in all it’s aspects. The Bulb pendants she has created for &tradition expresses her respect for the Nordic tradition of glass blowing and simple, pure forms, quoting the first source of electric light. But her approach to light is fun and feminine, sophisticated and sensuous.
Innovation: Working with international architects such as Conran Contracts, Aukett, CBA and Bates Smart, Sofie Refer is taking the Nordic light tradition way out in the world. She takes great pleasure in working with architects on projects where her customized lightning design closely follows the architecture and interior.
