Inspired by the connection between mathematics and the laws of nature, such as the Fibonacci sequence of numbers, Janne Kyttänen has also created a collection of lighting designs. The Palm Chandelier is a good example of this collection. It follows the growing pattern of the foliage in a palm tree and it is composed of 38 individual small Palm lights combined together to form a chandelier.

This lighting range comprises a standing, hanging and built-in ceiling light. The light technology is based on a micro prism structure, which directs the light into the room and avoids reflections on monitor screens. For the first time, color has been introduced: an illuminated plastic ring (in blue, orange, white or red) can be chosen to coordinate with office interiors.

Fold Collection is a range of lights with lampshades that create optical effects: the diffusers are produced in either stainless steel with a super mirror finish or steel painted with a semi-gloss white finish. They enhance the brightness of the light source when the light is switched on and reflect the natural light in the room when it is off.
