Fagerhult is a Swedish glasswork manufacturer, founded in 1943 by Bertil Svensson in Falkenbergs Belysning, Sweden. Out of desperation, Bertil Svensson started designing, drawing on his notebook a question marked shape lamp that would shine directly on people hands. He came on the idea, because his mother spent many hours a day knitting scarves for the family, unfortunately she often struggled since there often was insufficient light once the sun went down. Today Fagerhult is the Nordic Region's largest lighting group and one of the biggest in Europe.
