Concept Description

The Rakovalkea lighting pole design is based on the spellbinding fires of Lapland.

The Rakovalkea lighting pole design is based on the spellbinding fires of Lapland. The inspiration came from the city, the form, movements and colours of the traditional Finnish campfire, or Rakovalkea, have been integrated into the lighting pole and brought into the centre of Rovaniemi. Using RGB LED technology, the pole system has been programmed to change its colour and movement according to the time of the year. The poles follow the ambience of natural light; in the autumn and around Christmas the focus is on warm, fiery shades and in midwinter cooling shades, reflecting the mood of the ‘blue moment’ as twilight becomes night time. Rakovalkea is a combination of steel, wood and LED lighting techniques. The basis of the lighting is indirect lighting, providing light evenly to the pedestrian street.
