Formagenda is a German lighting company which specialises in the creation of bold and eye-catching lamps which they describe as standing for ‘emotion, shape and character’. The lighting brand was launched in 2008 by Hamburg designer Benjamin Hopf. The Formagenda collection has evolved organically and there have been many design awards won by both the designer and individual pieces in the collection.

Formagenda’s lamps stand for emotion and character, for a precise form language set in a new context. They resist the purely functional and the boringly fashionable without forgetting the most important vision: the love for design. Formagenda manufactures lamps that matter. The products are handmade in Germany and processed on a very high level. Formagenda works on an intense and personal basis with the suppliers and is using "classic" craftsmanship techniques instead of "impersonal" machinery processes.

With references from different epochs or details from the fashion world, Hopf spins a net of associations providing each object with its own unique character. It is almost like smelling a perfume which seems familiar and is yet fresh and brand new. Formagenda’s products evoke memories and unfold a game of associations, both individual and unmistakeable. Each of the collection’s objects invites the observer to get involved with the interaction of form and perfectly manufactured material.

Benjamin Hopf has been designing Lamps for international labels for over ten years and is responsible for Formagenda’s creative part. “A good product is a product you can fall in love with”.
