Ohm Pendant Outdoor By Ifî Electric, Design Kauppi & Kauppi 2020 (27)
Introducing the Ohm Pendant Outdoor edition, a new weatherproof suspended luminaire that brightens up the balcony, veranda and the backyard apple tree.
 
The Ohm Pendant, previously launched this year, widens the Ohm porcelain luminaire collection with its unusual splash safe feature for indoor installations. A rarely found suspended luminaire attribute, and a necessary aspect to cover when installing hanging light fittings in humid environments, such as bathrooms and wellness interiors. The second launch this year, includes an additional feature. The Ohm Pendant now opens the door to our living spaces outside – with a mission to brighten up the garden, terrace or backyard.
 
The growing Ohm Collection
The soft curves and restrained signature silhouettes of the Ohm luminaires makes the collection suitable for a wide range of situations. One of the inspirational starting points for the designers Kauppi & Kauppi and the development team at porcelain producer Ifö Electric, has been to achieve a flexibility in both use and expression. The Ohm collection already includes wall, ceiling and table luminaires in various sizes (launched 2019), but also a splash safe indoor pendant with a corresponding porcelain ceiling cup, revealed earlier this year. The desire to expand the areas of use even more, has grown gradually. Striving to make the most out of the durable, unique press porcelain material.
 
The new Ohm Pendant Outdoor
Introducing the new Ohm Pendant Outdoor – a porcelain luminaire with a high gloss glazed surface in white or black, IP44 certified and weatherproof. Attached to a black rubber covered cord and plug, ready to be plugged in and hung in any outdoor environment where it fulfills a purpose. Designed to be placed in the favorite backyard apple three, over a table in an open-air garden café or as a soft light, spreading a welcoming charm on a veranda. The strong sun will reflect but not affect the durable shiny glazed porcelain surface and raindrops may drip and ripple on the splash safe design, without impact.
 
“We wanted the pendant to follow the company’s tradition of producing multipurpose luminaires that are splash safe and may travel between different types of inside- & outside rooms. It is in a way mirroring our relationship to our living spaces - where we blend and blur the lines of conventional room definitions”, says designer Nina Kauppi

The Ohm luminaires share a shade program across the entire collection. The pendant’s shade sizes match the previous launched Ohm Table lamp, as well as the wall and ceiling fixtures. A concept kept within narrow limits of three selectable shades, keeps the production resources to a wise level, binding together the collection and the different areas of use. The white opal shade comes in two lengths. One for a short dense appearance, and a long shade for a more stretched silhouette. The clear glass option gives a possibility to create an individual look, when choosing a light source from today´s wide range of expressive lightbulbs.
 
“Developing an outdoor pendant varies a lot from working with other fixture categories. What differs the most is that there is no backside where things can be hidden. We needed to invent a clever way to integrate the splash safeness into the design. Simple, neat and intuitive was the ambition and of course the hardest to achieve” says product developer Adam Dennerkrans
 
A unique durability and long-term perspective
The production is made with a long-term perspective in focus. The light fittings are designed and constructed in a way that enables all components to be disassembled and replaced if necessary. If the light technology standards change in the future, new parts can be added. This means that the luminaires, together with the material's own durability, have the conditions to achieve an exceptionally long lifecycle, potentially longer than many buildings - neither wind, water nor strong sunlight changes the glazed porcelain surface.

During the switch to LEDs in almost all light sources, we have become aware of the concern it’s giving our customers regarding light sources for saunas where the LED light sources do not cope with the heat conditions. This applies both to the older sauna luminaires that’s already installed in homes and public environments, but of course also to newly manufactured sauna luminaires.
 
We have therefore developed our own Ifö Electric range of light sources that can withstand high temperatures. The range includes incandescent lamps with E27 and E14 fittings as well as halogen lamps with GU10 and G9 fittings. They can all withstand an ambient temperature of max 125° Celsius.

Ohm Pendant is a new addition to Ifö Electric´s grand Ohm Collection. The first splash safe suspended light fitting in the company assortment, opens new possibilities for how and where a pendant can be placed. A luminaire design that fits as well into the bathroom, as the bistro or by the bedside. Designed by Kauppi & Kauppi, inspired by the company’s legacy and tradition of timeless functionality.
 
Pendants for bathrooms and beyond
The new Ohm Pendant has attractive and functional features, suitable for a wide range of environments and situations - from bathroom and bistro to bedside. It is designed to be splash safe, enabling a new way of thinking when planning interiors and illumination. The pendant allows the interior and lighting designers to place suspended porcelain lights in bathrooms, spas and other wellness interiors – where splash safe certified lighting is required.
 
“We see the Ohm Pendant as a luminaire for the next generation of bathrooms, developing into something comparable to living room interiors. The design may be recognized as both classic and contemporary, the innovation occurs when the pendants are installed in new types of situations. A porcelain fixture that can easily fit in all types of rooms - where it fulfills a purpose”, says Nina Kauppi
 
In addition to installations in bathrooms, the soft curves and the restrained silhouette invites the luminaire design to blend into various interiors. A numerous group of pendants can form a space defining and shining cluster in a lounge environment. When placed as single pendants over a restaurant table, the Ohm Pendant becomes a pleasant focal point. In a bedroom, the dimmed light from Ohm will contribute to a cozy atmosphere, when used as a suspended bedside lamp.

IIn front of hundreds of spectators, together with other extremely talented companies and designers, we were awarded the prize together with Kauppi & Kauppi, which is responsible for the design of the series.
 
Motivation of the jury
The weatherproof IP44 Ifö Ohm luminaire series not only impresses with its clear, timelessly elegant design, which creates a beautiful silhouette, but also with its versatility in indoor and outdoor use. Constructed from a cylindrical, gently rounded porcelain body inspired by classic ceramic insulators and sockets and a shade of opal or clear glass as a counterpart, the luminaires have a pleasant, sleek appearance. The high-quality craftsmanship, which can be seen in the series and which can also be felt thanks to the ceramics used, is impressive.
 
A series of luminaires, cleanly designed down to the last detail, which interprets classic Scandinavian design in a modern way, which produces a beautiful, pleasant light and which blends harmoniously into many environments and living styles, whether as wall, ceiling, façade or table luminaires. These luminaires have what it takes to become a new classic.

The Ohm Pendant is high gloss glazed in black or white with a matching textile cord. Equipped with a classic E27 light source socket or G9. The pendant and the corresponding ceiling cup are IP44, splash safe certified. The design has taken the IP-classification one step further than usual, since the solution also secures the ceiling installation.
 
“Making the Ohm Pendant splash safe and fully certified, without compromising with the stripped simplicity of the design, has been a challenge. The new technical solutions and tools developed for the porcelain parts has been an effort worthwhile, since the durable porcelain fitting will last for decades”, says product manager Måns Kiaer.
 
The Ohm luminaires share a shade program across the entire collection. The pendant’s shade sizes matches the previous launched Ohm Table lamp, as well as the wall and ceiling fixtures. A concept kept within narrow limits of three selectable shades, keeps the production resources to a wise level, binding together the collection and the different areas of use. The white opal shade comes in two lengths. One for a short dense appearance, and a long shade for a more stretched silhouette. The clear glass option gives a possibility to create an individual look, when choosing a light source from today´s wide range of expressive lightbulbs.
 
A unique and challenging production
Ifö Electric, Scandinavia’s only factory producing pressed porcelain, uses a challenging production technique. The press tools consist of a positive and a negative element. Together they shape a cavity where the clay grains, with 15 % humidity, will be compressed and formed by a hydraulic press in one single stroke.
 
” Pressing porcelain is by far the most challenging production method we have encountered as designers. Behind every pressed detail lies a tremendous amount of work and development. The large investments and the products long life cycle brings a certain responsibility for us designers. A long-term perspective must be present, not only in functions and solutions, but also in design and expression”, says Nina Kauppi
 
The tool is highly complex and resembles a watch construction with winding wheels, slots and threaded taps. Once the porcelain parts are pressed, glazed and high temperature fired, they are ready to be tightly connected and sealed in a way that enables the lamp’s IP44 certification.
 
“Our design contributes with soft shapes to the assortment, something which is partly visual, how the luster of the glaze is reflected in the rounded silhouettes. What we mainly wanted to add is a sensory and tactile dimension to the products. So that the advanced industrial production can be experienced by the hand. The relationship we build to objects through our hands, is important”, Nina Kauppi concludes.
 
The production is made with a long-term perspective in focus. The light fittings are designed and constructed in a way that enables all components to be disassembled and replaced if necessary. If the light technology standards change in the future, new parts can be added. This means that the luminaires, together with the material's own durability, have the conditions to achieve an exceptionally long lifecycle. Neither wind, water nor strong sunlight changes the glazed porcelain surface.

Ohm Sauna – a new hot feature for the soft curved porcelain luminaires made by Ifö Electric and designed by Kauppi & Kauppi.
 
To develop a light fitting for a demanding environment like a hot, damp sauna is a true challenge. The latest extension of the Ohm luminaire collection is now certified and ready to be installed in high temperature sauna environments. The soft wooden interior and the shiny porcelain surface form a great contrasting company, in what often is considered as the heart of a spa - the sauna - a place for relaxation and contemplation.

Porcelain, heat & humidity
The durable pressed porcelain with its insulating characteristics, is perfectly tailored for the demanding assignment to illuminate a humid sauna. The hot and steamy atmosphere will not affect or change the resistant surface. Neither will the great changes in temperature, going from cold to extreme heat in short time, in many repeated sessions. The high gloss glazed porcelain is easy to clean and uncomplicated to maintain.
 
Slim selection
A narrowed down selection of Ohm luminaires will be available in the sauna edition. The white or black high gloss glazed Ohm 100, with a long clear or opal glass, equipped with an E27 light source for installations on walls and ceilings. The short opal glass version, with a G9 light source, will be available for wall installations.
 
The soft porcelain figures of Ohm are a welcomed extension of the company´s existing sauna assortment and a new extended area of use for the Ohm collection. The new addition makes it possible to illuminate an entire wellness interior with the soft and restrained curves of Ohm. A way to achieve a completeness in expression, when combining the sauna luminaires with the earlier launched splash safe pendants, wall and ceiling fixtures in the relax and shower areas.
 
To support the selection of sauna lighting fittings, Ifö Electric has also developed an assortment of special purpose light sources for their E27, E14, GU10 and G9 sockets. A series of special purpose dimmable lamps intended for use in sauna environments.
