Secto Design started off their new year exhibiting at some of the best furniture, lighting and product design tradeshows in Europe, amoung them, IMM Cologne and this week, in Stockholm at the Northern Light Fair, part of Stockholm Design Week. Secto Design’s sculptured wooden lamps, designed by Finnish Architect Seppo Koho have slowly grown to be the favourites of architects and designers worldwide.  Secto Design’s lamps are made from Finnish birch slats connected by rings of aircraft plywood and hand made by highly skilled carpenters in Finland.

This year at the Northern Light Fair, they debuted two brand new products (one of which can only be partially seen in the picture above). The first of these is the linear Ovalo Pendant, an addition to the Ovalo series of wall, table and floors lamps already in production.

The second is the Kontro Pendant, described by Secto Design as, “the one most suited to the general lighting of a room … its lightsource is a round energy saving lamp”.  In addition, Secto revealed that they are going to launch a fourth finish – a walnut veneer finish. Can’t wait to see that up close.

INDUSTRY NEWS: Vibia Halley wins Interior Design Best of Year Award 2011

Congratulations Vibia! Your partnership with Jordi Vilardell has earned you yet another award for your truly inspiring efforts to rethink the very framework of lighting. When we wrote previously on Vibia’s outdoor line we admitted we were a little awestruck. Apparently, we weren’t the only ones.

Inspired by the arches of a comet, the many iterations of the Halley series’ soft glow and luminous arches use LED strip technology to provide elegant, energy efficient lighting for the outdoors.

They’ve drawn their 2012 collection together from a familiar roster of acclaimed designers and studios, along with a few new partnerships, and have managed all the while to stay true to their commitment to the expression of new ideas, the progress of production and materials, and their unique, trailblazing futurism.
