Alma lamp started off as a product development project between the designer Meeri Särkkä and Innolux. The project is Särkkä’s thesis for the Turku University of Applied Sciences, and the aim was to research a completely new material and its use in a lighting fixture for Innolux. The hoped outcome of the project was a product family ready for production.
The owners of a newly opened restaurant Kaskis, located in Turku, Finland, had seen pictures of the prototype of Alma pendant and wished to have it in their restaurant. The product suited perfectly their philosophy of supporting young talents and local production.
The first Almas were produced directly for the project, and after making the final touch by having green wires to the pendants to suite the space they were placed ready for the opening of February 2014. Scandinavian styled fresh and relaxed Restaurant Kaskis was chosen as the restaurant of the year by a recognized Finnish food & wine magazine (Glorian koti & viini). The designer Meeri Särkkä has been short-listed as a young talent at http://www.vuodenhuiput.fi/fi-FI/vuoden-huiput-2014/shortlista/ .
Innolux Pro would like to thank all the parties involved in the project, great work!
