Raised in Norway and the United States, Nils Finne established FINNE Architects in Seattle in 1994, bringing a Scandinavian understanding of craft and landscape to the Pacific Northwest. Dedicated to the idea of Crafted Modernism, Nils typically designs custom lighting, furniture, cabinets and hardware for every project. FINNE has produced more than 80 pieces of custom fabrications, which are also sold as stand-alone items.
At FINNE Architects, we have been practicing sustainable design for over fifteen years. We are members of the Cascadia Green Building Council and we are LEED certified. We design every project to conserve resources by using passive heating and cooling, maximizing the use of natural light, and employing sustainable building materials. Current work also includes active systems such as photovoltaic panels and ground-source heat exchangers.
For those who love the pendant light you can find this type of lighting in a variety of shapes and sizes which will add the necessary amount of lighting to any space. If you find the right amount of light for a room it will both change the rooms appearance and give it more life.
The SKLI Pendant designed by Nils Finne looks like silk crinkled perfectly in straight lines.The designer placed hundreds of thin glass rods on a clear base sheet by hand, which were fused together in a kiln at high temperature.The light shines through the glass plane and reflects on the ceiling above, creating a subtle and alluring effect.
