Nilak, Qinu and Qanik are ideal for lighting up the areas around a museum, the central island of a kitchen, a seaside walkway, the entrance yard to a residential building, a restaurant patio, the wine cellar of a major vineyard, corridors in an office block, inside a luxury boutique, etc.  

Luminaires with frosted effect films ø70, 100 and 133

The Lö collection was born of the partnership between Sammode and Yann Kersalé, and all of the Lö models have been assigned Inuit names symbolising the different types of ice. Two different facets are created with the two translucent films, one with a prism effect and the other with a mirror effect. By night, these films send sparkles out into the dark, while by day, they reflect the surrounding environment. 

Lö: a luminaire collection with a glacial design 

The Lö collection has an icy feel to it, the design was inspired by the glacial landscapes of Greenland and Baffin island. This emblematic Sammode tube houses two superposed translucent films: one prismatic film combined with a mirror-effect film. These two facets transform the luminaire into a source of poetic beauty, travelling through space to the Arctic circle.  

Yann Kersalé: specialist in plastic arts in the field of light  

From Marseille to Doha, Yann Kersalé dreams up exceptional architectural lighting and set-ups worldwide. Building on his Beaux-Arts training in Quimper, this artificial lighting expert has worked in partnership with some renowned architects (Jean Nouvel, Norman Foster, Rudy Ricciotti, Helmut Jahn, etc.) for over 40 years. He uses light much like a brush, adding touches of art and transforming sites into visual poetry.  

Nilak: half wall light, half portable light  

The small Nilak wall light is designed as a portable off-road lamp. You can hang this model outside or inside, on its stainless steel wall fastenings, to meet your needs and depending on the season. Adjust the lighting levels using the dimmer switch for a subdued mellow environment or a diffused well-lit area. Whether on or off, this model fits in with the decor, just like any unique designer object.

Qinu: the suspended kaleidoscopic fitting 

The suspended Qinu LED fitting can light up a 360° zone. The large diameter of this model is compatible with use as a ceiling light, wall light or suspended fitting. The typical ice-effect design of the Lö collection would add a great touch to your interior design, by day or night. The translucent film sends out kaleidoscopic sparks when you turn the Qinu on. The colourless mirror-effect film reflects the surrounding environment when you turn the Qinu off.  

Qanik: a full-length wall light

The Qanik wall light is available in two lengths, giving an elongated finish. Install the light either horizontally or vertically to add some glacial reflections to any type of area, ranging from your bathroom to the garden. When turned on, the myriad of sparkling prisms creates visual poetry. When turned off, the coating reflects the decor, just like a mirror. An elegant multi-purpose indoor/outdoor luminaire.
