Manufacturer's Product Description

Plate

Design
Vesa Honkonen & Julle Oksanen

Key features
- Designed for contemporary architecture – Minimalist design expression – Indirect, soft & diffuse illumination – Floating glass plate concept ensures majority of light is directed downward – Defined glass form provides ambient illumination

Concept
Plate is able to provide the space with indirect, soft and diffuse illumination. The concept of the glass plate as a floating reflector ensures that the majority of the light is directed downward. Two layers of sandblasted glass, with a center laminate, allow transmission of light both horizontally and vertically, defining the glass form and providing ambient illumination.

Finish
Black metallic or darkgrey metallic, powder coated. Laminated glass.

Story behind the product
Plate started out as a custom design product for the Art Museum Kiasma in Helsinki, Finland. Even though the Plate was not used for that particular project, a larger family member called the “Curve” was then created. Curve is designed with a curved piece of glass. The idea behind the Plate was to create a minimalist fixture in sync with contemporary architecture, and at the same time dealing with a conscious use of the light source. The design expression is minimalistic and makes the fixture suitable for similar architectural environments.
