    In 1995 Tuula Jusélius and architect Seppo Koho met and they knew right away they were kindred spirits. The two share a respect for Northern woods as well as Scandinavian design and professional woodworking. Customers who bought their furniture complained about not finding suitable lamps to go with the furniture. There simply were no wooden lamps on the market. So Seppo Koho got to work and the result was the Secto pendant lamp that is still the backbone of the collection.

    When you are considering a dining table, it is a good idea to think about what you are going to use it for. Is it in use everyday? How many people do you need to fit around it? Do you need an extra leaf for large gatherings? Do you entertain often?

The solid wood tabletop is made from hardwood staves that run the full length of the table, giving it a harmonious surface.
