"My designs are inspired by my own cultural background and a modern Scandinavian lifestyle.” - Mikko Kärkkäinen

Nominations for the State Award in Design are made by the Finnish National Council of Architecture, Design, and Environmental Arts.

“This luminaire’s combination of wood with cutting- edge LED technology makes it an extremely aesthetically pleasing product that’s also very appealing and unusual in every way.” - Jury statement

The Ballon pendant luminaire is a versatile, adjustable, and internationally diverse piece of art in every aspect. Its steel frames are available in black or white coating options, and the adjustable light panels come with oak or walnut veneer, or in finished black or white. Additionally, for a more luxurious appearance, the steel frame can be coated with 24 Karat gold.

With its clear design that focuses on wood and ecology, combined with modern technology, the Ballon collection stands out from Tunto's previous style by incorporating new materials and shapes in wall, floor, and pendant lights. It pays a timeless tribute to old design classics by combining organic materials with premium LED technology.
