We are exceptionally proud of the fact that all of the lamps produced by Belid are manufactured in our own factory here in Varberg, Sweden. We have our own design and construction department, prototype workshop, sewing studio and metal work department. Our commitment to our products is clear to see in their journey from idea to finished product, resulting in lamps characterised by genuine craftmanship and high quality.
Our range is characterised by classic Scandinavian design incorporating clean, stripped back lines, simple shapes and functionality. Together these elements combine to create timeless lamps for all rooms, environments and contexts. Included in the range are our contemporary and popular classics such as Gloria, Picasso, Cato and Diablo.
As a student at HDK in Gothenburg, Joakim Fihn had his sights set on one workplace after graduation - Belid Lighting Group. After a visit to Belid's factory, Joakim was both inspired and impressed by the opportunities of having manufacturing, offices, design teams and project managers all under one roof. Shortly after completing his thesis, Belid became Joakim's workplace, and he has been there for 15 years. Today, Joakim works as an in-house designer, responsible for the development of Belid's product range.
