Pilke by Tuukka Halonen for Skandium


Finnish designer Tuukka Halonen has designed a range of pendant lights made of repeated interlocking parts for design brand Skandium.

Called Pilke, the light shades are made of identical plywood cutouts, which interlock to form a three-dimensional shape.

The shades slot together and don't require any tools or adhesives to assemble.

The collection includes two different designs that come in white, black or beige.

Here's some more information from the designer:

Skandium launches PILKE from Showroom Finland, designed by Industrial designer Tuukka Halonen. PILKE pendant lamps are entirely made in Finland and assembled by local craftsmen.

The Shades are constructed of identical interlocking parts, no tools are required on assembly.

The Lights are suited for energy saving light bulbs only. The material is ply birchwood and they come in two sizes - 36cm and 60cm.

    this is really good
    i especially love the beige large one
    it’s amazing all you can do with plywood
    wood for good design, and not for pseudo-‘eco-design’

    Why are these lights photographed/rendered in such bright conditions. If the quality of light PRODUCED is to be part of the design then show that in the images.

    Without that information, these nothing but sculptures.

  • J is right !

    I’m going to have to disagree…I think they were photographed in light for form purpose…its true there is a definite need to see these in the environment in which they were intended..but I wouldn’t get too hooked on drawing negative conclusions…let’s just see some atmosphere…photographs in dark environments needed..
