Luoto is a piece which is inspired by vernacular Finnish design and the ancient method of letting a natural material communicate how it wants to be used. We have spent the summer picking up rocks, cutting them in half and drilling holes in them. Little by little we started to identify the rocks that have the best potential and those have become candle holders.

Materials: stone
