Kaamos is a group of young designers formed by: Erik Bertell, Vesa Kattelus, Katriina Nuutinen, Anna Palomaa, and Matti Syrjälä. The name ‘Kaamos’ (Polar Night) originates from the concept of polarity: a way to look at things from opposite directions.
“The darkness is concrete in snowless southern Finland. When contrasts disappear the surroundings are turned into grey mass. The importance of light becomes apparent. Artificial light becomes the requirement for all activity. Our aim is to create a meaningful environment with light to bring solace from the darkness.”
