Aarikka’s new lamps for autumn



Aarikka’s theme for its autumn 2016 home range is a harmonious and calming polar night. As the evenings draw in, it’s nice to spend down time at home curled up with a book. Aarikka’s new tones for autumn are graphite grey – which lends itself beautifully to interior design – and deep lingonberry red. They enhance the timeless freshness of our longstanding translucent white and pure white wood.

New for autumn, the Nuppu lamp is a timelessly stylish tabletop lamp suitable for both bedside tables and dressers. The Nuppu lamp was designed by Saija Malila.

The atmospheric Valopallo lamp is a fabulous ball lamp designed by Aamu Song and Johan Olin. It made its debut at Aarikka’s 60th anniversary exhibition and was brought into production due to popular demand. This autumn the Valopallo lamp is available in a new colour: graphite grey.

The popular Reitti ceiling lamps designed by Anu Penttinen are now available in two new colours: graphite grey and lingonberry red.

Responsible business, eco-friendliness and sustainability are of the utmost importance to Aarikka. Only the best wood is used as the main material in the products, and all products are assembled by hand in Finland. Aarikka has a number of subcontractors and employees who work from home, and in addition, the company offers assembly and packaging work to workshops promoting social inclusion and employment. All Aarikka products are finished with care.

Aarikka is a family-owned Finnish company founded in 1954. It manufactures characterful jewellery and small home accessories. Aarikka’s design is known for its crisp Scandinavian lines, round shapes and wood.

Wood is – and has always been – the most important material in Aarikka’s products. The wood’s warmth and round, turned shapes are characteristic of Aarikka and tell their own story of a Scandinavian tradition.

Aarikka employs a number of subcontractors and employees who work from home in Finland. In addition, the company offers assembly and packaging work to workshops promoting social inclusion and employment. Transportation journeys can be kept short because products are assembled locally. In addition to local manufacturing, our products’ eco-friendliness is also enhanced, as we avoid the unnecessary use of packaging materials and favour eco-friendly raw materials such as wood. In Finland Aarikka has its own brick-and-mortar store, an online store and a comprehensive network of retailers. Outside Europe, significant export destinations include the USA and Japan. The company directly employs approximately 20 people.
