THE IDEA

THE LUMINAIRE SYSTEM LUO-light IS INSPIRED BY THE MIDSUMMER SKY THAT REFLECTS IN THE SURFACE OF A TRANQUIL LAKE DURING THE SUMMER SOLSTICE. THE DAYLIGHT IN FINLAND CHANGES DRAMATICALLY FROM INTENSE BRIGHTNESS AT NOON TO A WARM GOLDEN GLOW AT DUSK. OUR LIGHT BRINGS THE EFFECTS OF  NATURAL LIGHTING INTO THE CONFINEMENT OF URBAN INTERIOR SPACES, WHICH HAS A DIRECT POSITIVE IMPACT ON OUR WELLBEING.

STRAIGHT AND CURVED MODULES CAN BE CONNECTED FREELY. THE RESULTING SHAPES REMIND OF THE SOFTLY CONTOURED OUTLINE OF  A LAKESCAPE
“WE KNOW THAT WE CAN DO OUR PART TO TACKLE CLIMATE CHANGE. THAT IS THE REASON WHY WE USE MAINLY BAMBOO, AN UNPARALLELED  EFFICIENT AND SUSTAINABLE RESOURCE, AS OUR SOURCE MATERIAL.”

Oliver Walter

MODULARITY

The system consists of modules that can be combined in any order to form straight lines and circles or a combination of both. LUO is made of simple but highly optimized elements crafted from bamboo. The extraordinary strength properties of this material are rigorously utilized. This results in a slim cross-section and a large span width. Each module is unique with its own specific bamboo grain.

LIGHT

The system has an inter-connectable, multifunctional light source that not only can be dimmed but also tuned to cast from warm to cool light depending on a desired relaxing or energizing effect. Two separate up-down light components allow illuminating spaces in ever-changing ways. For example mystic ceiling lighting and/or functional downwards illumination. The LED units use the latest generation of highly efficient Samsung mid power LEDs that can be easily replaced for future updated versions.

Optimized, harmonious and even light output with no glare. LUO uses the last generation of highly efficient Samsung mid-power LEDs.

“IT IS OUR CONVICTION THAT LUO SHOULD BE MADE IN FINLAND THE COUNTRY FROM WHERE IT GOT ITS INSPIRATION”

Oliver Walter 

SHAPE

LUO will unleash your creativity to freely shape light in any surrounding like homes, offices, gastronomy, educational- or health facilities. The straight and curved modules can be suspended, flash mounted or attached via consoles. It is an effective opportunity for architects and interior designers to complement their design with a highly modern, robust and flexible lighting solution.
