Dyyni pendant. Innolux Dyyni is a new type of atmospheric lamp for offices and homes. LED light is filtered through the acrylic cover, making it soft without glare, and is given a warm tint by the ash surface. Dyyni provides sufficiently intense illumination for the office, but it is equally well suited to home dining rooms and other uses. The lamp resembles a gently sloping sand dune. The lamp’s design was inspired by the idea of adding warmth and homeliness to office lighting. Dyyni combines the unique design skills of prize-winning designer Mikko Laakkonen with the new LED technology and traditional Finnish woodworking skills. LEDs enable the lamp’s delicate design. A thin ash veneer frame, LED light sources, and an acrylic cover create a seamless and homely combination. A LED light source is included with the lamp.
