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.
Handcrafted in Finland.
Hans pendants are handmade in Finland from a combination of solid pine wood and the finest pine veneer. The circular strips of veneer might not be completely symmetrical, as pine is a natural material that lives and seeks its shape. This means that each Hans Pendant is a unique piece.
Pine is a very characterful material. As a result of the naturally occurring oils and resins, pine will change colour as it ages. Heartwood and sapwood will start aging at a different speed resulting in gorgeous stripy patterns. The color will gradually even out and mature to a beautiful honey tone over the course of years.
