REVONTULET

Revontulet is a Finnish name for the northern lights or aurora borealis.
Aurora is the most magnificent natural phenomenon that I admire until now. When I was a child, I had a dream to see the aurora by my own eyes. The dream moved me on to know further about aurora and become my inspiration to design this luminaire.

The purpose of the design is to expose the shadow that released from the light. The design describes a uniqueness of northern lights which is contrast between aurora and complexity of the landscape underneath. I tried to apply it by exploring light effects from two kinds of material which has a different contrast, which is natural material wood sheet and artificial material aluminum screen.

Both have of course a different light effect but could become a beautiful harmony, same as the landscape when aurora clearly visible.
