The man behind the brand is Arash Nourinejad, the Iranian-born architect and founder of Anour. Loyal to its principles and committed to exceptional quality, Anour’s manufacturing requires a lot of manual, highly skilled craft and it takes several weeks to bring a lamp to life. The skilled craftsmen of Anour cut, shape, smooth, oil, sand, brush and caress each surface for the perfect silhouette and surface. Their hands have been working with metals for many years, understanding the physical limits and the abilities, allowing for experimentation and high quality that makes Anour’s pieces exceptional.
Anour workshop is established according to traditional manufacturing – but with a modern approach. Continually projecting new ideas, quality systems, exploring relatively unknown surfaces, and conceiving unexpected uses. This capacity to continually reinvent its profound know-how puts ANOUR among emerging ground for new crafts. All equally demanding in terms of quality and inventiveness, raising the label “Made in Denmark” to new heights.
The name Anour is as a derivative from the founder's name Arash Nourinejad himself with the additional meaning of "light" in Farsi.
After finishing The Royal Danish Academy of Architecture in 2007, Arash Nourinejad started his career in architecture. As part of his own private renovation in 2012, he created a lamp that he presented to the world at the BLIK FANG Fair. The interest was so high, that Arash decided it was time to develop a brand - Anour, which he did the same year.
