Mernøe is a family-based lighting design studio in Copenhagen. The studio is lead by designer and engineer Morten Mernøe, alongwith his two sons. Mernøe makes high-quality lighting by combining traditional materials with engineering and modern technology. All components are manufactured in Copenhagen, with each lamp made in the studio for the individual customer.
A MERNØE lamp is made from a carefully selected piece of wood, which is processed into a thin lamp shade. Each shade is cut out to maintain the natural structure of the wood. When the form is in place, the shade is grinded and treated with beeswax.
Mernøe is mounted with brass fittings. Each fitting is milled from a solid piece of brass, which is then polished and surface treated to compliment the wood.
