Secto Design

Secto Design and designer Seppo Koho crossed paths in 1995 when Tuula Jusélius was seeking a designer for her new company, whose first products were furniture made of innovative glue-laminated wood. The very first time Tuula Jusélius and the newly graduated design architect Seppo Koho met they knew they were kindred spirits: The two share a respect for Northern wood as well as Scandinavian, clear design and professional woodworking.

Secto Design and designer Seppo Koho crossed paths in 1995 when Tuula Jusélius was seeking a designer for her new company, whose first products were furniture made of innovative glue-laminated wood. The very first time Tuula Jusélius and the newly graduated design architect Seppo Koho met they knew they were kindred spirits: The two share a respect for Northern wood as well as Scandinavian, clear design and professional woodworking.

Customers who bought furniture from the company complained about not finding suitable lamps to go with the furniture. Tuula Jusélius noticed the same: there simply were no wooden lamps on the market. So Seppo Koho received a commission. The result was the Secto pendant lamp that is still the backbone of the collection.

Pictures do not do justice to the light filtering in through the wood battens: it must be experienced directly. This is why fairs have become the main marketing channel for Secto Design. Over the years the company has built a comprehensive retailer network around the globe.

Secto Design lamps attract not only friends of design, but imitators as well. The beautiful shade forms have been copied in lamps cheaply made of other materials. Nonetheless, Secto Design persistently stands up for its lamps against increased and blatant copying, trusting that its customers appreciate the quality of original Secto Design lamps and the fine work of Finnish craftsmen.

The Secto Design lamps are initially designed for energy saving bulbs and today Secto Design is actively searching for new, low-energy light sources such as the best possible LEDs.

The birch of the Secto Design lamps is produced in Central Finland that is transported only short distances. During production recycling and sorting are paid attention to, and sawdust, for example, is used to make wood pellets for the heating of houses.

As the manufacturer of electronic products, Secto Design is responsible for the recycling and waste management of its products according to the European Union's WEEE Directive and Finnish waste legislation. Secto Design is a member of SELT Association.
