The Kori pendant light by Artek is part of a collection of luminaires, conceived by TAF Studio, with each design based on a central “basket of light”. This is also where the collection’s name stems from: Kori is Finnish for “basket”.

As you would expect from an Artek luminaire, the Kori lamps emit both direct and indirect light, creating a cosy, welcoming atmosphere and lighting that imitates natural light: the soft glow coming from within the basket resembles the evening sun shining through the leaves. The collection’s luminaires are made in Italy, with their matte white powder-coated surface looking almost like porcelain. The lamps are designed to be durable and low-maintenance, and their metal components can be easily separated and recycled.

As the Kori suspension lamp emits direct downward light, it is ideally placed over a counter or small table. At the same time, however, it also provides diffused uplight, making it perfect for atmospheric or accent lighting above a sideboard or in the corner of a room. Thanks to its minuscule size, the pendant light can also be used as a general light in a hallway or other smaller space.

TAF Studio

The Swedish architects Gabriella Lenke and Mattias Ståhlbom have run the architecture and design studio TAF (previously TAF Architects) in Stockholm, Sweden, since 2002. TAF Studio’s aim is to make ordinary life less ordinary through subtle but effective changes in how products and architecture appear and function. A recurrent departure point in TAF Studio’s projects is that everyday objects by their very commonness can be made uncommon.

Lenke and Ståhlbom have designed products for Muuto, NakNak and Fogia. In 2017, the prestigious Bruno Mathsson Award was given to TAF Studio.
