A new finish from Secto: walnut

Secto in walnut Isn't this wonderful?

Until now, Secto's lights have been available three finishes: birch (which is what the slats are made of), white laminated birch or black laminated birch:

All shapes are now also available in walnut. Here is a collection:

We know of no other collection that is understood by such a wide variety of people and used in such a wide variety of locations. People are naturally favourably disposed towards them. So we were delighted when we met Seppo Koho, the interior architect who designs them, to disciover how much fun he is!

They are beautifully hand made from PEFC-certified Finnish birch by highly skilled Finnish craftsmen. There are also wall, table and floor versions. The lamp is at the top, where the slats join each other, so that there is no glare. The light then travels through the birch which softens it.

Clairière, a new pendant in oiled walnut or white Corian from Dix Heures Dix

Clairière by Fabrice Berrux in Corian for Dix Heures Dix The lights presented by Dix Heures Dix on parent Atelier Sedap's stand at Light+Building showed how they are moving away from the large fabric pieces with which we primarily associate them. Our favourite was Clairière by Fabrice Berrux. You can see above the larger version in white Corian©. It also comes in oiled walnut:

It is easy to miss specific designs from a company that one identifies with a particular look when they introduce a new direction, so do look through the rest of the collection. The new pieces are at the top.

Here is an example of the smaller version which escaped to join his ancestors in the wild:
