kauppi & kauppi expands ‘ohm pendant’ luminaire collection with new outdoor edition


introducing the second launch of the ohm pendant collection by ifö electric, kauppi & kauppi has designed an additional new outdoor version of the signature luminaire. following the desire to expand the areas of use even more, the designers have made it possible to use the porcelain pendant in gardens, terraces and backyards.

one of the inspirational starting points for kauppi & kauppi and ifö electric, has been to achieve a flexibility in both use and expression.we wanted the pendant to follow the company’s tradition of producing multipurpose luminaires that are splash safe and may travel between different types of inside & outside rooms‘ shares nina kauppi. the new ohm pendant outdoor is a porcelain luminaire with a high gloss glazed surface in white or black, IP44 certified and weatherproof.

 

 

 

attached to a black rubber covered cord and plug, the pendant is ready to be plugged in and hung in any outdoor setting. it can be placed in the favorite backyard apple tree, over a table in an open-air garden café or as a soft light, spreading a welcoming charm on a veranda. the strong sun will reflect but not affect the durable shiny glazed porcelain surface and raindrops may drip and ripple on the splash safe design, without impact.

the pendant’s shades and sizes match the previous launched ohm table lamp, as well as the wall and ceiling fixtures. a concept kept within narrow limits of three selectable shades, keeps the production resources to a wise level, binding together the collection and the different areas of use. the white opal shade comes in two lengths; one for a short dense appearance, and a long one for a more stretched silhouette. the clear glass option gives a possibility to create an individual look, when choosing a light source from today´s wide range of expressive lightbulbs.

developing an outdoor pendant varies a lot from working with other fixture categories. what differs the most is that there is no backside where things can be hidden so we needed to invent a clever way to integrate the splash safeness into the design. simple, neat and intuitive was the ambition and of course the hardest to achieve‘ says product developer adam dennerkrans.

the production is made with a long-term perspective in focus. the light fittings are designed and constructed in a way that enables all components to be disassembled and replaced if necessary. if the light technology standards change in the future, new parts can be added. this means that the luminaires, together with the material’s own durability, have the conditions to achieve an exceptionally long lifecycle, potentially longer than many buildings – neither wind, water nor strong sunlight changes the glazed porcelain surface.
