At LIK Lighting, we have a passion for simple, elegant and functional design. LIK x are our innovative and unique lamps, developed in close collaboration with innovative designers.
Our focus is to design lamps that create identity, a unique expression and are in harmony with the room’s architectonic expression.
LIK CALDERA is our new pendant designed for LIK Lighting by architect and designer, Lars Vejen.
The form is geometrically simple with both a raw masculine and elegant feminine expression, emphasized by the rustic material and soft edge at the top of the lamp.
The CALDERA in depth
The shade is manufactured using recyclable aluminum.
The hand-beaten finish made in Indonesia after the old traditional Indonesian craft method also adds a refined expression to the lamp, while attractive, natural ornamentation is derived from the fine craftsmanship.
Using this traditional handcraft techniques means that every CALDERA lamp is unique and with natural traces of both hands and tools.
The lampshade rests on a star-shaped suspension with an integrated LED light source and is easily unhooked by tipping the suspension for convenient cleaning.
LIK CALDERA is available in three shade sizes (mm):
– Small Ø170 kr. 3995,-
– Medium Ø250 kr. 5995,-
– Large Ø400 kr. 7995,-
Wipe the lamp clean by using a dry, soft cloth.
Dirt can be removed with a soft cloth – damped in lukewarm water with a mild detergent.
Never use detergent containing abrasive and solvent.

About the collaboration
The collaboration between Lars Vejen and LIK Lighting began in 2019, when we invited Lars to design a new pendant series. As well as designing LIK Lighting lamps, Lars also assists with the technical development and design of existing LIK fixtures.
Ambitions for the collaboration are high with more new lamp designs on the way.
