Sofie Refer (b.1974) is a Danish designer who graduated from 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.
