Ville Kokkonen designed for Artek the WHITE collection of four bright-light fitting, recently launched at the Milan International Furniture Fair and Lighting Exhibition 2011. WHITE is an outcome of Artek Studio's in-depth research on the use of light fittings in domestic, office and public spaces.
In common light fittings, with their design and colour, are the stars on stage, and light gets sidelined. With WHITE Kokkonen wanted to bring a new perspective on how we perceive lighting. Now it is time for white light to take center stage!
The collection consists of BRIGHT WHITE 1 (a, light-therapy certified, bright light table lamp), WHITE 2 (a standing and wall light), WHITE 3 (a suspended light) and WHITE 4 (a table light).
