Luz Difusion/light

In the 1930s, Alvar Aalto pioneered the use of laminated bent plywood in furniture design and applied it to his chairs and stools. Eight decades later, Barcelona-based lighting manufacturer Luz Difusion has used the same technique for its concave suspension light “Suomi”. Made from four 2cm-thick blocks of oak that are moulded then laser-cut into shape, Suomi, which means Finland in Finnish, was named in deference to Aalto.
