The Octo pendant is a classic with a refined and elegant design. This lamp will find its place in a multitude of environments, whether large or small, public or private. Available in 2 sizes and 4 finishes, this lamp is beautiful on its own, hanging over a table or in the middle of a room. The Octo pendant is also very attractive hanging in a row over a counter, or as a group to form a chandelier by playing on lampshade sizes, finishes, and cable lengths. The Octo pendant uses the same principle of construction, very dear to Secto Design: thin slats of birch plywood, fixed to plywood rings. These slats, slightly spaced from each other, let a delicate and warm light pass. Each lamp is made in Finland by a highly skilled craftsman, and is subject to rigorous quality control.
The Octo pendant comes with a white textile cable and canopy, except for the black version (black cable and canopy).

”I truly enjoy turning sketches into wooden prototypes with my own hands. Finding a concrete solution to implementing a detail after persistent experimenting is a fascinating moment!” says the award-winning architect Seppo Koho, the designer of the Secto Design lamps.
Secto Design has collaborated with the internationally acclaimed architect, interior designer Seppo Koho (b. 1967) since 1995, first on furniture and since 2002 focusing solely on lamps. Seppo Koho is a graduate from both Helsinki University of Art and Design and Tampere University of Technology. Currently he runs his own architecture studio in Helsinki.
Seppo Koho’s architectonic touch is clearly visible in the Secto Design lighting collection. All the lamps are suitable both for public and private interiors which for him is a sign of good design. Seppo Koho also regards the Secto Design lamps as lighted spaces seen from outside, like cosy houses on a dark evening.
Seppo Koho not only designs the lamps but also makes the first prototypes by hand himself. He has always been interested in wood crafting and experimenting with the possibilities that wood as a material can bring. Making a wooden prototype of a new lamp solves many details in the design a computer drawing cannot answer to.
Seppo Koho’s aim is to make lamps that give a harmonious light without the blinding shine coming from visible lightbulbs. The light source is hidden in all the Secto Design lamps whereas the light itself is visible in the fascinating patterns it makes on the walls and floor. The play of light and shadows together with the warmth of the birch wood give Seppo Koho’s minimalistic designs a poetic twist that intrigue people all around the world.
