The original GOOD DESIGN founded by Saarinen and Eames’ in Chicago in 1950 is the oldest and most important Awards Program worldwide. Green GOOD DESIGN identifies and emphasizes the world’ most important examples of sustainable design. This award was granted for Showroom Finland’s lights PILKE and HAVAS, design Tuukka Halonen.
The inspiration for the PILKE lights came from traditional Finnish shingle work, but Tuukka Halonen upgraded the design to a modern structure made with today’s state of the art technology. Repetition of plywood part in right angle creates a beautiful subtle friction to light. HAVAS is a do-it-yourself lamp and comes in a flat box with assembly instructions. The plywood lamp constructs itself of tens of birch plywood slats, which will be joint together to form an intelligent structure.
