Before founding his own company, he worked as a in-house designer in a Finnish lighting brand and has been as a partner at a design consultancy firm.

It is designed to endure time through its pure design language intended to counter constantly changing fashions and trends, as well the use of led as a light source. The lamp prototype is manufactured by bending a machined piece of solid surface material around a mold. Loop won 1st prize in LG Hi-Macs national design competition.

Change – Coin deposit lamp come from the fact that, apparently, 95 percent of environmental impact of lighting comes during the usage. Change is an task light for public spaces (libraries etc.), encouraging to turn lights off when leaving the desk in order to reduce the energy consumption. On the other hands, the IA light pattern is adjusted by changing the lamp’s position. The lamp can be also folded flat for easy transportation and storage.
