Johan Kauppi’s ‘Arkki’, the Finnish word for ark, was derived from the fixtures ability to balance technique with soft shapes while somewhat resembling a craft or capsule.

“The shapes are also an expression of a restrained and functional design tradition from my background in northern Sweden.” says Kauppi.

Each Arkki lamp is constructed from a single, or two joined shells, of pressed felt. Surprisingly strong, the shells effectively support both light technology and recessed diffusers in acrylic with only a few parts.

“By working with a sound absorbing material and efficient light technology, a good acoustic- and light environment is ensured.”

 

The Arkki family consists of ceiling fixtures and pendants, with a direct or direct – indirect light distribution. For the light source, both LEDs or fluorescents are standard options. Standard colors are black, grey and white but a variety of colors can be chosen as an option.
