lions & cranes is a swedish based design

COMPANY with a nautical focus. we find

our coastal surroundings inherently rich.

the wind, the salt, and the sea, IN COMBI-

NATION with THE people who, through will,

grit & determintion, carved out a life here.

These elements inspire and inform the

FUNCTION & form of the products we make.

OUR FOUNDATION IS ethical production, hard

work, originality, curiousity, and A good

SENSE OF humour. we like a good adventure

AND a great story. we OFTEN drink coffee

that has gone cold AS WE WORK OURSELVES

TO THE BONE. we may not have A brilliant

idea every day, but when one comes ALONG,

we chase IT for all ITS worth. our hope is

that we CAN hook a few, reel them in, refine

them, and then share them with you. -l&c

The Story of Lions & Cranes

The coastline is filled with stories, characters, smells, sounds, and sights, distinct

from that of the city, countryside, desert, or jungle. Though much has

changed due to modernity and updated technology, there remains an undeniable

draw to the iconography of the sea; anchors, ropes, bells, whistles, old

fishermen. This is the stuff of human endevour, of adventure, and ingenuity.

It is here that Lions & Cranes have chosen to moor, exploring the sometimes

overlooked history and motifs common to a coastline predating GPS and

high-visibility clothing.

The back story of Lions & Cranes is one of two designers with wildly different

backgrounds, sensibilities, and skill sets, whose chance meeting would see

them come together into a partnership exceeding the boundaries of what either

would be capable on their own.

Kurt Lightner is a visual artist who grew up in the corn fields of Iowa, nowhere

near any ocean. After working as an illustrator for magazines in New

York, he moved to Göteborg, Sweden, earning an MFA in design at HDK. This

is where “The City of Lions & Cranes” was born, a nickname for his new harbor

location. Fascinated by its post-industrial nature, Kurt set to hand cutting

and printing motifs inspired by the unique things he encountered in his

new surroundings.

Carl-Johan Victor, a design engineer, entrepreneur, and graduate of KTH

Royal Institute of Technology, spent years working as a design engineer in

the auto industry. He wanted explore developing his own products and was

searching for a designer for his website when he was given Kurt’s contact information.

Their meeting in the summer of 2013 proved transformative.

After browsing through Kurt’s portfolio of linocut prints, Carl-Johan began

to envision the possibilities. Shortly therafter, Calle presented Kurt with a

proposal of taking the aesthetic of his hand-made linocut prints and turning

them into functional households products.The advent of this meeting was the

formation of Lions & Cranes. Though neither could have anticipated what lay

ahead, both recognized the potential and were eager for the challenge. Now,

four years and countless cups of coffee in, Lions & Cranes continues to forge

ahead, with new products and ports-of-call. Commitment to ethical production

is a hallmark of Lions & Cranes’ design process, as is the continual learning

and investigation of life in relation to the sea.

Lions & Cranes is now represented in stores throughout Sweden, as well as

several shops in Norway, Finland, and the UK. Kurt & Calle are VERY excited

about the NEW items in this collection and are happy to now be sharing

them with you, and thank the many who have helped along the way.

The sun is on its way back to it’s zenith, bringing with it the promise of a new

Spring and Summer. Here comes the sun!
