LIGHTS NORTH OF THE 60th LATTITUDE
made in helsinki
Things look a bit different up here in the North. For us, light is a precious gift from nature, our source of wellbeing. It’s alive. Or should be. To design light is to design how we interact with one another, how productive we are, and how much time we want to spend in a place.
It’s this kind of experience that has turned us into one of the world’s leading experts in innovative, high-quality lighting. We understand the latest technology. Technology is our heritage. But moreover, we understand the poetry of light.
SAAS has spent the last three decades helping our customers discover a whole new level of meaning in lighting. Whether you are looking for the right ready-made components, elegant lighting fixtures, or want to work with us on creating a completely tailor-made solution, we will help design a lighting scenario that suits your needs – and exceeds your expectations.

The entire country is situated above the 60 degrees north; Helsinki is at the southernmost point and lies directly on the parallel. A full one-third of the country is located above the Arctic circle. This means that in the summer, there are 52 consecutive days of 24-hour daylight, and in winter there are 60 consecutive days where the sun doesn’t rise above the horizon at all.
Half the world’s population that lives above the 60th parallel live in Finland (5.5 million people to be exact)

Sense Light Swing is a light fixture that is also a moving, eye-catching work of art that works well even in large spaces. The shape of the fixture comes from a hanging swing for children; Alexander Lervik’s concept for Sense Light Swing was created, after all, for the 2005 show “Five Playful Chairs”. The seat of the swing, made from transparent acrylic, is lit from within by a strip of high-powered LEDs.
Sense Light Swing creates a spectacular light show as it swings back and forth on its long hanging cords. Sense Light Swing has garnered large amounts of attention in the international media ever since its prototype phase.
Even it is a lighting fixture it work as swing too.
