The very first time Tuula Jusélius and the newly graduated design architect Seppo Koho met they knew they were kindred spirits and they launched Secto Design in 1995: The two share a respect for Northern wood as well as Scandinavian design and professional woodworking.
Secto Design shades are made of PEFC certified, flawless Finnish birch veneers that are form pressed into blanks. The blanks are cut into slats, which are sanded and finally connected using rings of aircraft plywood. The slats are glued and nailed to the rings. All the lamps are finished and checked carefully before despatch from Finland.
The light source is hidden inside the shade to prevent glare and the warm light reflecting from the birch emphasizes space and creates an inviting environment.
