A floor light and a smaller table lamp are the latest characters to the added to the "Family of Lights" collection that currently consists of a desk lamp and a swiveling wall light.

Looking to the hidden messages in materials, these pieces create a powerful link to our emotions and has an influence on the shape of our daily lives.

The "Family of Lights" pieces are all sturdy, with their own unpretentious personality.

Wood was chosen as a material that one associates with warmth, reliability and life while the mineral plastic works well due to its tactility and intimate glow.
