The designer Oliver Walter is a German architect living and working in Helsinki for 20 years. With his participation in outstanding architectural, lighting and art projects he gained a deep insight into the Finnish design methodology. Wood as a sustainable material and the LED light source have captured his special interest. In his view a light should not be used with a simple switch but should instead respond to the userĀ“s intuitive and nuanced interaction.

Sustainable design, production and trade is not just a marketing label but a heartfelt urgent necessity. From the conception of an idea to the final product the question must be answered “is there a more resources saving option?” In most cases, the answer is yes and most surprisingly, the option is often even cheaper. Bamboo serves here as an example, there is no better raw material that combines conservation of natural resources with versatility and cost-effectiveness.
