Simo floor lamp is a re-interpretation of traditional Finnish "luminaire" which precedes even candles in some parts of the country. Burning thin slices of wood ("päre") on a stick was one of the very few ways of banishing the darkness in the old times.
In Simo the short-lived combustion is replaced by an almost infinitely shining array of LEDs. Electricity is kept hidden as much as possible: there are no bulbs, wires, or buttons visible. LEDs are laminated in between the layers of plywood veneers. For height adjustment, simply slide the LED stick up and down the copper rods. Simo can also be turned horizontally up to 270 degrees.
The structural rods double as conductors delivering the power to the diodes. To turn on the lamp, simply tap the rod gently: a capacitive dimmer switch is activated. Pedestal also houses the 24 volt DC power supply.
