Lux Arctica

The unique lights of Northern Lapland come alive in the soft blueness of the polar lights, the brightness of the early spring snow and the golden midnight sun, and provide a perfect setting for a light exhibition.

LUX ARCTICA was theme for Design House IDOLI exhibition in 2011-2012. The name refers to the lights of the north as well as luxury, embodied by good design and high quality.
