Pilke 80 pendant lamp

By Showroom Finland


  • Description

    Pilke pendant lamps were created by the industrial designer Tuukka Halonen for Showroom Finland. Pilke is a Finnish word that means twinkle. Pilke shades are constructed of identical interlocking parts and the repetition of plywood parts in right angle creates a beautiful three dimensional, geometrically decorative light shade. Pilke pendant lamps are entirely made in Finland of birch plywood and assembled by local craftsmen. Pilke pendant lamps come in following sizes 18, 28, 36, 60 and 80 cm diameter, and three different colours; white, black and natural. The pendant lamps use energy saving bulbs only.

    Tuukka Halonen

    Tuukka Halonen is a highly talented designer with over 10 years experience in commercial design environment. He graduated from Royal College of Art in London 1998. During 2000 to 2004 he worked in the design department at Habitat, developing products with high volume manufacturers from around the world. Tuukka started his own design studio 2005 back in Finland.

    In his work Tuukka wants to investigate material qualities, beauty of structures. This can be seen in hypermodern "Sphere Luminescence" lighting installation. These geometrically decorative lights were first displayed in Milan Fair in 2008. Lately Tuukka Halonen has been influenced by traditional crafts employing wood in its various forms. He has created new interpretations of the craft heritage utilizing today's manufacturing techniques and materials.

    As for sustainability he has strong opinion for good old fashioned quality. "Quality in materials, manufacturing and usability will be essential for long lasting use of products. For example if a ten year old chair can be bought in a flee market and be used for another ten, this to me is best possible recycling."
