The warm glow of light filtering through pine veneer combined with an unexpectedly graphic and elemental form is the enduring appeal of these iconic designs by Hans-Agne Jakobsson. When Vaarnii began exploring the use of pine wood in lighting design, it quickly became clear that the iconic designs of Hans-Agne Jakobsson from the 1960’s could not be bettered. Pine is used efficiently; it’s tone and grain are employed to maximum effect in designs that project material mass but boast actual lightness. Vaarnii has re-engineered three of Jakobsson’s pendant designs using solid Finnish pine to support circular strips of high-quality pine veneer, reintroducing these classic 20th century designs to the market after decades of absence.
Made in Finland.
The Hans series of lighting is made in Finland using solid pine for internal structure and the finest pine veneer for exterior surfaces. As every light is handmade using a natural material, each object is subject to subtle variations in symmetry. Every Hans light is therefore unique.
Pine is an especially characterful wood. As a result of naturally occurring oils and resins, pine changes colour as it ages. Vaarnii uses both pine heartwood and pine sapwood. These two different types of wood mature at different speeds, resulting in a beautifully stripped surface. This exciting patterning is a temporary stage and should be enjoyed while it occurs. Your Vaarnii pine product will gradually even out to a rich honey tone over the course of several years.
